I'm hoping to get a marriage lookup in either Lee County, VA or Bell County, Kentucky for John Cheek Sr. (1881-1961) and Mary Lou Carmony (1885-1939).
Their oldest child listed in the 1920 Census for Bell County was born around 1908, so I'm guessing the marriage occurred around or before that time. Mary Lou and her family are from Lee County, Virginia, so it's possible the marriage occurred there if I can't find anything in Bell County.
While I'd love a marriage date and location for the marriage of John and Mary, my primary goal is to get confirmation on John's parentage. Every family tree I've found online shows his parents as James F. Cheek and Rhoda Jane Bull, and until now I have accepted this. Now that I look more deeply into this, I cannot actually find any records showing this parentage.
I find James and Jane in the 1900 Census, but their son John was born in Jan 1878 and not July 1881 as I would expect if this were the John I'm looking for.
Please let me know if you have any information that might help!
