Chapter 103: "Hundreds of Pike county men and women are descendants of
pioneer couples who were married by old Preacher Elledge. There is
record in the county clerk's office in the Pike county courthouse of 73
couples who were married by Jesse Elledge, who signed himself as a
minister of the United Baptist Church. His first weddings in Pike county
were on October 25, 1832, on which day he married two couples, namely,
George Bright and Nancy Norris, and Ambrose Shelley and Jane Wells."
