I cannot answer your direct query as to where this marriage transpired, but I have the date of 18 Aug 1835, and that J G Umberson was raised by Uriah Berry (husband of Malinda Tabor, and uncle of Elizabeth Kellum). I have a note that an Edward Kellum, (father of Elizabeth)was found in the 1850 Chickasaw Co, MS, Census and another was found in the 1850 Carroll Co, MS, Census.
Edward and Karenhappuch (Tabor)Kellum were in Waco, McLennan, TX before the Civil War, and I record Elizabeth (Kellum) Umberson as buried in Gholson Cem, McLennan, TX after her death in Gholson on 19 Nov 1889. Waco was my hometown.
I had thought until about 6 months ago that I was descended from another Kellum daughter, but alas, not so. I'll be glad to assist further if I can. Ben in Fort Worth
