    Elbert and Nancy were married on June 10, 1811 in Laurens County. "The History of Laurens County" Marriages from 1809-1817, page 281. Marraige Book A. "Elbert Pitman was groom, Nancy Counsel was bride. Amos Love issued license on June 10, 1811 and the marriage was recorded on March 28, 1817." No notation as to when the marriage was solemnized.
