Rachel Killebrew, daughter of Buckner

Rachel Killebrew is my 3rd great grandmother and I am trying to write her story. Because the Montgomery Co.,TN courthouse burned, I am having a hard time confirming her marriage date to George W. Neville. Dates that I have seen are 1802 and 1805, but no documentation. I believe that she was about 17 when married to George Neville and according to the writing of Mary Jane Barry Killebrew, a sister-in-law to Rachel, she married against her parents' wishes. The age although a clue is not definitive either because of the variance in birthdates that exist for her. I believe the date to be before 1795 and place to be in NC because according to the recollections of another prominent Killebrew, she was already born when the Killebrews came from NC to Mongomery Co. TN in the 1795-1796 time period. Because of the extensiveness of this family and their level of literacy, I am speculating that Bible records exist. If you know of such records or other documented evidence for the date of Rachel's birth or marriage to George W. Neville, I would love to know. Also, her parents, Buckner and Mary Killebrew gave their other children middle names but I have not see one for Rachel. Does anyone have this piece of information? Thanks, Donna
