From Alabama Marriages - Early to 1825, by Liahoma Research, Inc., Orem, UT, LOC #f325 .A45, Henry Gotcher m Polly Wildman 30 Jul 1818 Jefferson co, AL. I don't know what, if any, connection there might be to your Mary Gotcher. I do have copy of bio from Varnell's "Early Alabama Baptists" on a Rev. Henry Gotcher b 12 Feb 1792 Pendleton District, SC "into a family that had been among the pioneer settlers of Sullivan County in upper East Tennessee"... It is rather lengthy, but doesn't give his wife's name, and the only ch mentioned are Temperance m Harrison Hancock and Jemima m James Henry Varnell. Henry is likely related to Anna Gotcher who m Vinson/Vincent Stanphill. They were in Franklin co, AL by about 1818. Rev. Henry Gotcher assisted in establishing Mud Creek Baptist Church of Christ (Primitive Baptist) in Jackson co, AL 1819. Elizabeth "Betsy" Stanfield was a founding member; looking like Betsy's husband David was a bro of Vincent Stanfield.
