Treasure Chest Thursday~Marriage License Samuel Atkinson and Lecty Huneycutt

Lecty Huneyctt is the baby daughter of my 2nd Great Grandparents, James W. Huneycutt and Sarah Elizabeth “Salle” Page Huneycutt. Lecty is my Great Grand Aunt.

In  the 1910 Census for Stanly County, NC, she is married to Samuel Atkinson and has two children in their household. In the Census it’s reported that they had been married for 9 years and had 3 children, 2 living. So for many years my database fact for Lecty and Samuel marriage has been, “Married abt 1901, Stanly County, North Carolina.” 

The search for their marriage license has been ongoing for years and this past week I was successful in finding their Marriage License in Anson County, North Carolina.
