    • 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.

  • Notes 
    • The following notes are based on observations made while researching the family of Washington and Tirza Vines.

      I listed Jo Eler's birth between 1870-1874 because:
      1. She is not listed on the 1870 census
      2. The Goodspeed's biography of Washington Vines list Jo Eler as a child of Washington and Tirza's. The biography says that Washington went to Texas for three years and then relocated to Union County, Arkansas. It also listed her death as 1874. Speculation would put her born in either Louisiana (where he was living before moving to Texas) or Texas, depending on when she was born and when the family moved to Texas.

      I listed Jo Eler's death in Texas because her sister, Joanna, was born in Texas (based on census data) in 1874. Therefore, Jo Eler would have died around the same time as Joanna was born.
