Monday Is for Mothers: Timney P. Watts & Jesse Warren Jr.

My paternal fifth great grandparents Jesse Warren Jr. and Timney P. Watts were married on December 24, 1824* in Morgan County, Georgia.

[Morgan County Marriage Book, 1821 - 1835. Marriage Books, Morgan County Ordinary Court, Georgia Archives.]

Jesse Jr. died on January 6, 1826, just over two years after their marriage leaving his widow Timney and their 3½ month old son, my ancestor Jesse Thomas Simeon (J.T.S.) Warren.

*Although it may seem strange to us to have a wedding on Christmas Eve, we have to remember that the Christmas customs we're familiar with date from the mid-19th century and later.
