Wishing to place an original, framed marriage license of David M. Harris and Willie Maxwell who were married in Jones County, 24 Dec 1899.

Suspected children by the 1920 census are Fay, Earnest, and Frank.

Velma Faye (Harris) Lyon's obituary from Greenville, Texas, shows the following extract:

Greenville Herald Banner, Sat, 28 Sep 1996, A: 2
Obituaries, Velma Faye Lyon (1 Dec 1900 - 26 Sep 1996)
__Baptist
__Bundy, Velma Fay, Aunt Of
__Cross, Spencer Andrews, G-Grandmother Of
__East Texas State University, Employee
__First Christian Church, Commerce
__Harris, David M., Daughter Of
__Harris, Frances K., Sister-In-Law Of
__Harris, Frank S., Sister Of
__Harris, Maxwell, Sister Of
__Harris, Velma Faye
__Lyon, Clarence Frank, Mother Of
__Lyon, Clarence H., Wife Of (1930)
__Lyon, Frank B., Grandmother Of
__Lyon, Phyllis, Mother-In-Law Of
__Lyon, Velma Faye (Harris)
__Lyon-Gross, Hillary A., Grandmother Of
__Maxwell, Willie, Daughter Of
__Pemberton Funeral Home/Chapel, Commerce
__Rosemound Cemetery, Commerce
__Stanford, William, Father, Officiant

The license came to me from a friend who could not bear to throw it away while going through things. It was not of her family as were not the family photos acquired with the license.

Please help.

With pleasure! The easiest route would be contact with member: JTSEARS. He owns "Lipan Family Tree"(http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/32166092/person/18196418712) and Fay (nee: Harris) Lyon listed as "private" but her lifespan, parents, and siblings kinda defeats the attempt at secrecy! For the obit, Velma Faye Harris, was probably the daughter of Ernest Maxwell Harris (29 Jan 1902 - 2 Jul 1965) and Mamie Lee Shepherd. When her aunt passed, namesake Velma Faye was probably married to Harvey Allen Nolen? There are birth records for this couple: Sandra Lee, Richard Harris, and Rebecca Ann.
