Notes for William Henry & Sarah Ellen (Family)
Rowan Co. Marriage Record Bk 3 lists marriage of Sarah E. Clark & Wm H. Dehart on Jan 11, 1900 at the residence of "Wm P. Dehart, groom's father." (The marriage record is incorrect in identifying Wm P. Dehart as the groom's father - he is only so described in the "married at" line. They were really married at Wm. P. Dehart's because it was the _bride's_ home, but it would be natural for a clerk to assume that W.P. was the groom's father's, since it was he and not she who was a Dehart.)
1900 census of Rowan Co., KY, Hoggtown prec. 4, enumerated 12 June, lists on p. 9A as family #149:
William Deheart, 24, b. Jan 1876; Sarah E., 17, b. 1883 (no month); no children, married within the year. (The date of birth for William is not consistent with his death record, which has 27 Feb 1874, nor with the 1880 census, which has him age 6. But the 1900 census of Rowan Co. seems to be pure fiction on a great many birthdates.3
