We have lots of census data, we need to find some marriage dates to match husbands and wives with locations. We also know that some of the records may be as CRIDER, CRITER, CRATOR or other variations. Any help you can give will be appreciated. They were in Bollinger County by 1850, near Marble Hill. We are hoping to determine where the original land grant was physically located.
