From these records, James Washington Craft and Drusilla Hammonds were both born in Wilkes Co NC, but their marriage took place in Floyd Co KY on Feb 17, 1812. The first child was born in Perry Co KY, and the second child was born in Letcher Co KY, I have not been able to determine whether Mahala and the subsequent children were also born in Letcher Co Ky, but it seems like a logical conclusion. If I find anything further, I will follow up.
