Hawkins County,TN. Marriage book 1866 - 1899, John H. Fox and Susannah Christian marriage license was issued Dec. 18 1878, license was not returned by minister/bondsman , Hawkins County book does not give ages nor parents name as the Scott County books do. But I found in another book , Susannah was one of 11 children born to David A. Christian and Mary Ann 'Polly'Vaughn. Susannah was born Dec. 1959 and died august 1939 there is to much to post here.

I think there are quite a few who have hit a brick wall with Susannah Christian (Fox, Fox, Payne, Pickerd), especially for the husbands' lines.

You can find her with her parents in the 1860 census (I still haven't located them in 1870):

US Federal Census 1860, Rogersville, Hawkins Co, TN, Series: M653 Roll: 1255 Pages: 92, & 93 (David Allen Christian - look for both David and Al; and Mary Vaughn/Vaughan)


FOR HENRY ROY FOX:
I still haven't found Henry Roy Fox's marriage record (he's not in the Wise County, VA records). I'm assuming he married Lydia/Lida about 1906. Do you have a marriage date for them and her last name?

Here's some other information I have on Henry Roy:

Lida was a Hughes. Her mother was Lillie Hughes daughter of Nimrod. I don't think she was married when she had Lida. I know she married Daniel Lawson later on when Lida was a girl and that Lida sometimes went by Lawson. Lida always told me she and Roy were married at Midway, Tn. close to Greenville, Tn. Midway is a hole in the road. I don't know if there are any marriage records or not I have not gone to the courthouse to check. I have not found any records on line yet. I know my grand mother, the oldest child was born in Hawkins co. and they lived there for a period of time, but moved around a lot. I just can't seem to find anything on William and Susan after they were married.
