I found Stokley Jackson and Amanda Ravia in the marriage index for Collin Co., Texas as follows:
See Collin Chronicles, Vol. XVIII, no. 2, Winter 1997/98, (Collin Co., TX Marriages Book 7, 1888-1890, vol. 18, no. 1):
118. S. Jackson -- Amandy Ravia
12 October 1888 T. J. Wilson ordained minister
Also, they appear on the 1920 census for El Campo, TX as Stokely and Amanda Jackson.
Amanda Ravia Jackson's parents were Joseph Ravia and Adeline Parrish (Parish). Amanda was born about 1867 in probably Grayson County, TX. Joseph Ravia appears on the 1870 census for Grayson County, TX, as a farmer with wife Adeline and their children Emily, Amanda, and William Riley. Adeline and Joseph were married on December 25, 1864 in Sherman, Grayson County, Texas in a double wedding with Joseph's sister Emily Ravia and friend Peter Mondier. Adeline and Joseph later divorce and he remarries several times. The family story from Joseph's descendants is that Amanda lived with her father until she married Stokely Jackson.
Hope this helps! I would love to have more specific information about Stokely Jackson, too. Thanks!
