  • Notes  Married:
    • In the biography of Washington Vines that was published in "Southern Arkansas Biographical and Historical Memoirs",Page 868, Goodspeed Publishing, 1890, ancestry.com, the biographer states that Washington and Tirza were married in October 1865. This date differs from the marriage date listed in "Arkansas, County Marriages Index, 1837-1957", ancestry.com. I do not know why the difference in the dates, but one possible explanation would be that the first one is a J.P. wedding while the later is a church wedding. This does help explain the three children (Jordan, Sarah, and Ida) born before the 1871 marriage.
