Notes from "History of Grundy County," Chapter XXX, Jefferson township, page729:
"The first couple to seek the joys of connubial life, were Benjamin S. Ashby and Miss Elizabeth Harris, and the marriage took place at the home of the bride's father on the 28th of March, 1838. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. James McMahan, a Methodist minister. It was one of the happy events that relieved the monotony of the early days of toil, the couple received congratulations that were hearty and possessed that quality which makes them appreciated--they were meant, every word of them."
