    • Their names are recorded in the marriage index as "M. P. Hemphill" and "James II Young." The marriage was performed by "Thos. N. Pezetom" [Thomas N. Paxton].
      According to Hemphills in North Carolina, Thomas Lytle and Eliza Burgin were married in the same ceremony, which took place at the Hemphill home.

      Ben Hemphill and Fanny Saunders were married the same day, by the same minister, so presumably they were also married in the above ceremony.
