    • Tennessee Marriage Records, 1780-2002 has two listings for the marriage of David Seagraves and Mollie Sellers, both in Wilson County, TN. One dated 31 Dec 1882 lists David as David Seagraves and Mollie as Mollie Sillars. The second dated 31 Dec 1883 lists David as David Seagrave and Mollie as Mollie Sellers.
      We believe the Dec 1883 date is probably the correct one even though David's memorial on Findagrave.com indicates they were married in 1882. [2, 7]
