Which information is correct
Looking at the marriage information for my great uncle Josiah McGee I get conflicting reports. One set of Family Search records indicate he married Emily Smitson 26 July 1864, Dekalb county, Tn. There is also records indicting her name was Emily I Smitson. Ancestry.com has the record as Emily J Smithsom. Almost identical spelling except for the H. Not having visual access to the actual record begs me to ask exactly what does the record say? Is it Smitson or Smithson? Adding to the mystery is it was a double ceremony with his brother, James W. McGee, marrying Mary A. Smithson. This information is verified to be correct. Is it just coincidental their names were almost identical? Or were they sisters/cousins? Its hard to move forward until I know the correct spelling of the last name of Emily.
Thanks for any help,
