Cress,Eliza m:Joseph Bonham 1885

Am trying to get some BONHAM information straightened out. I have Eliza Jane CRESS (daughter of Josiah & Nancy V. CRESS) b: 19 Feb 1858 Smyth Co. VA m:1885 in Smyth Co. VA - Joseph M. Bonham b: Feb 1860 TN.

Their children - that I know of -

1) Robert L. BONHAM b 1885 VA;

2) Mary V. BONHAM b: 1888 - VA m:M. HAULSEE. She died 29 Nov 1949 Smyth Co. & is buried in Haulsee Cemetery.

3) Laura B BONHAM b: 1890 VA

4) James BONHAM b: 02 July 1894 - VA

5) Nancy M. BONHAM b: 1896 VA.

In the 1910 Miracode for Virginia it lists in Smyth Co.:
     Bonham,Joseph M. 50 TN
     Bonham, Jane L. 51 VA (Is this Eliza       Jane?)
     Bonham, James F. 15 VA
     Bonham, Nancy M. 14 VA
     Bonham, Cleo V. 08 VA

Do I have Eliza Jane CRESS married to the wrong person? In the 1860 & 1880 Smyth Co. census she is listed as Eliza Jane and still living with her parents.

Thanks for any help or suggesions.

Thank you
Bev in Oregon
