James F. Taylor/Alka Rivers Marriage 1920's/1930
Posted by: James Taylor (ID *****7419) Date: July 16, 2007 at 07:49:44

I am researching my father's (James Forbes Taylor) first marriage. He married Alka Rivers. They were married and living with my grandfather J. L. Taylor in 1930. I am hoping someone can help with a date for the marriage and when the marriage license was issued.

1930 Federal Census
Name: Alka Taylor
Home in 1930: District 3, Johnson, Kentucky
Age: 31
Estimated birth year: abt 1899
Relation to Head of House: Daughter-in-law
Spouse's name: James F
J L Taylor 57 Grandpa
Elizabeth T Taylor 55 Grandma
Lulu Taylor 31 Aunt Lu
James F Taylor 29 My father
Alka Taylor 31
Ladora Taylor 27 Aunt Dora
Agnese Taylor 24 Aunt Agnes
Robert J Casey 16 Aunt Blanche's son, Robert Carey
Blanch E Harry 6 Agnes' daughter Blanche Eileen Haney
Burns Camba 47

My research shows that my father was in the Marines until at least 1924. The family was living in Jennies Creek Kentucky in 1920. I am guessing that my father and Alka were married between 1924-1930.
I am sorry that I do not have a marriage date, just a time span in which the marriage could have occurred.
I have checked with the Johnson County Probate Court and no marriage license was found on file. I have checked with a fellow researcher and no marriage for James Forbes Taylor and Alka Rivers was recorded in Johnson County.
I am hoping they got their marriage license and were married in a neighboring county.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
Jim in Ohio
