The Bible lists his marriage to Minerva Steele occurring on 16 August 1822. (It may have been 1821 see source #4, the date in the Bible being entered at least 24 years after their marriage (1821 to 1846)
Minerva Steele did not list her year of birth in the Bible. She may have been born in 1808 (age 13 or 14 when she married Belfield Wrenn) or 1803 as indicated by the 1850 Census (she would have been a more respectable 18 when she married Wrenn) She may not have wanted to document her year of birth.
The Bible does list her marriage date to William Sharkey as 15 March 1832.
