"I know my grandfather Rev. Tommy Nelson married 1st Nettie Gentry at the court house in Rusk Co, there is a marriage cert. for him and a Fannie Adele Morris but was not returned and then a 3rd marriage record with him and my grandmother Nellie Stokes...  so I am really interested in knowing who these Morrises are."
