    • A transcription of the marriage record gives Lucretia's name as "Lucretia Hamp". No one has been able to find any evidence of a "Hamp" marriage, and the evidence seems convincing to me that Lucretia's maiden name was Harris. At this time, I have chosen not to record a prior marriage for Lucretia - it appears she was living with her sister Jane Brown and mother Elizabeth Harris in the 1840 census.
