Wedding Wednesday - POE, 1900 Bell County, TX

I just found three marriage records on  No images yet, but these records have now been indexed.  What a great resource.  It’s amazing how much new information is available every month.

A major brick wall was what happened to Zollicoffer Poe and his wife, who I believe to be Lola Mont Swinney.  I don’t have proof yet of this marriage.  However, Lola is listed as married in the 1900 census.  Two children of Zollie and Lola were Harmon Lamar and Minnie Poe.

These are the marriage records I found.  All were in Bell County, Texas in 1900.

Mrs. Lola M. Poe married J. O. Jones on 23 Dec 1900
          Film 0981038;  Index M75204-2
H L Poe married Clara Wedel on 20 May 1900
          Film 0981038;  index M75204-2
Minnie Poe married Y B Mayfield on 30 Aug 1900
          Film 0981038;  index M75204-2

This is a start for me.  Now I just need to write for a copy of the records, or go to my nearest FHC and order the correct film
