Searching for the marriage record or birth parents of Ernest Prince and Gussie Gillens( all various spellings of Gillans, Gillons, Gillians, Gilliam etc). Ernest and Gussie, I believe judging by the birth of their first son, married approx. 1914 at the ages of 15 and 16. I know that they were born and married somewhere in WV. They are on the 1920 Franklin County OH Census stating they were born in WV. Their first two children also born in WV. They were both born approx. 1898 or 1899. I would like to find their marriage record or find them at the age of 10 or 11 on the 1910 census. These families should be listed as Black or Mulatto.

I have no idea what county to begin searching...so Im also searching for any county in which black or mulatto PRINCE AND GILLENS both resided at the same time in 1900 or 1910.
