I'm hoping that someone out there may be able to help me. I am looking for a John C. Ailes, he was born in 1829 but I don't know where. He married a Mary Ann Steen on 9 November 1848 in Rankin county, Mississippi. The marriage records state that her name was Mary Ann O Steen; but this is not correct; Mary is a daughter of Elias Steen and Elizabeth Smith. From what I have been able to determine, John married Mary when she was sixteen (16) years old.
