    Notes 
    • On the copy of the marriage license Paralee signed her name Lewis. Her maiden name is Elliott and she denotes that she is a widow. This interesting as this is the first evidence of her being previously married. It shows that they were married "at mouth yellow creek Montgomery County". The are asked their age and the age of the bridegroom is listed as "63 years Feb 27th, 1881" which would give our only reference to his true birth date. February 27, 1818. This helps to solidify his mother being Elizabeth Sullivant Crockett, first wife of James Crockett. The bride's age is listed as "38 years 10th of Apr., 1881". This would make Leftridge 25 years her senior. His occupation is listed as "Ferryman". All in all this document verify the only reference so far of their birthdays and marital status prior to this marriage.
