Waybourn, Brown marriage--03-1832 Rockingham

Greetings... Looking for information on a William T. Waybourn who married Elizabeth A. Brown in Rockingham County, NC-- March 1, 1832...William T. was born in Rockingham County in 1800 (I believe)..These two traveled into Mississippi around 1850 (where he is on record buying land) and later to Montague County, TX where W.T. purchased land and both are buried there. We would really like to know more about the Brown name. Their daughter M.A.E. (who we have listed as Mariah A.E. on one census) married into our family..Woodford Bennett (son of Richmond and Anna Hess Bennett of Warren County, KY) who lived in Montague, TX mid to late 1800's. Other researchers have her listed as Elizabeth A. (same name as Mother)..born about 1843 in VA. She was 7 on Mississippi census--Chickasaw County, MS--...If anyone knows of these names,,,please email me as we are trying to put together a big puzzle...Woodford lost land to Indian raids in TX...filed for compensation with gov't...died before money was received,,,his wife continued suit and received money for lost cattle and land...She used the name..Betty..on the documents which we have...we believe she died in 1903. We do not know where she or Woodford are buried,,but believe it is in the Montague area...Thanks in advance....Marcia
