* Although this marriage license was transcribed with the bride's name as Ellen Louise Chatum, the original image was not displayed. Census records indicate that the Ellen is actually Ettie and her 1944 death certificate has her surname as Cleaton. This researcher believes the "llen" transcribed orginal script was actually "ttie" and the "hatum" transcribed original script wasa ctually "leaton". See general notes for Drury Young for census facts and medical notes for Ettie Cleaton. The 1900 census records Ettie L. Cleaton.
