In Reply to: Shipman & Turner, Bedford County TN, Southwest MO by Bob Banks of 857

Saw your query for Shipman & Turner and decided to check my "Lawrence County Marriage Records, 1845-1870" (compiled by Fred Mieswinkel, LCMO Historical Society, P O Box 406 Mt Vernon, MO 65712)
(Page numbers are actual Lawrence County Marriage Volumes for year shown if you request a certified copy)

Marriage records for Shipman show 9:
Shipman, Charles to Nancy "Suny" 6 Dec 1849, by James Irwin, MCP, pg 49
Shipman, Christopher to Martha C Shipman, 26 Sept 1865, by L B McNatt, JP, pg 306
Shipman, Daniel, to Elizabeth Anderson, 26 July 1856 by James M Jones, M MEC, pg 144
Shipman, Dennis H. to Mary Ann Anderson, 8 Oct 1848, by John J McNatt, MG, pg 34
Shipman, James W to Sarah M Smith, 18 Oct 1866, by R H Landrum, CO, Ct, Pg 353
Shipman, John to Martha Moore, 4 March 1869, by Robert J Sims, MGCPC, Pg 467 (Min Gospel Cumberland Presbyterian Church)
Shipman, Robert W to Mary A Burrow, 31 Mar 1847, by Alex A Young, MCP, Pg 21
Shipman, Ruben to Sarah Emiline Foster, 1 Nov 1866 by Nathan C Spilman, JP, pg 352
Shipman, William to Sarah Anderson, 4 Mar 1852, by J C Jenings, JP, pg 72

I find Christopher and Martha C's marriage interesting and this could be a Martha C (Turner?) who had married a Shipman sibling or a 1st cousin prior to moving to LCMO who died in the Civil War back in Bedford County. At this time during the War, it was not uncommon for women to marry brothers of their deceased husbands or husbands to marry sisters to their wives if their wife had died in childbirth. CHECK CIVIL WAR SOLDIERS ENCYCLOPEDIA for service records and Tennessee Units. A BRIDES INDEX showed a Mary C TURNER but not marrying a Shipman!

There are 4 Shipman Brides listed (Lawrence County) in the alphabetical Brides index of this LCMO publication:
Martha C to Christopher Shipman; (same as above)
Mary J. Shipman, 22 Oct 1868 to Jacob L Moore, AA Young, Pg 447
Pernelia Shipman to Greene Bridgewater, 20 July 1862, by Joseph Batesel, JP, pg 255-6 (GB Dies!)
Sarah Ann Shipman to William C Wagoner 23 Aug 1860, by B B Kimmons, JP, pg 229
Susan J Shipman to Louis JC Hays, 28 Dec 1863, by L B McNatt, JP, pg 274

Marler, John J. to MARY C TURNER, 25 Sept 1856, by John B Woods, JP, pg 154
Love, John B & Permelia A (nee Shipman) Bridgewater, 29 Dec 1867 by AA Baxter, Min. Bapt. Church, Pg 406
