On 25 Apr 1826, a marriage license was issued in Pope County for Job Weeks and Mrs. Mary Reed, widow.
Job and Mary were married five days later on the 30th. The ceremony was performed by J. H. Smith, Justice of the Peace - possibly the same J. H. Smith who later became the administrator of Job's estate. (Yes, that means I also found Job's estate papers. More about that and Job later.)
