My grandmother, Frances Eliza Holtsford, married J. R. Dicus on September 9, 1875 in Wayne County, TN. Her name is given as Fannie Halford in the marriage records. My mother (who lived to be 102)told me that according to my grandmother J. R. was ill and my grandmother wanted to take care of him and that he died soon after they married. My grandmother was 17 at the time and lived in Lawrence County, TN or at least her parents did. I don't know how she met him or if they lived in Wayne County after their marriage nor who his parents were. Evidently he did die sometime within the next year because Fannie married my grandfather, James H. Battle, on September 14, 1876, also in Wayne County. I have been unable to locate J. R. on census records for Wayne and Lawrence Counties nor can I find any record of his death or where he is buried. Does anyone have a clue?
