I have a great uncle Neal Valentine. His given name was Cornelius Valentine. He was born January 1888 in Mecklenburg County, VA. I have to wonder if my uncle Neal and the Neal Valentine listed as having married Susan Owens in 1909 are the same. I know of my great uncle getting married in 1933 to Obelia Morris however, my mom shared with me many years ago a story about him having had a wife prior to his 1933 marriage.
"5. Elizabeth MORTON "Bettie" (Susan) was born Sep 1869/1871 in NC. She died 18 Apr 1928 in Granville Co., NC.
Bettie married Wallace OWEN(S) Sr. on 1901/1902 in Prob. Granville Co., NC. Wallace was born Mar 1861/1864 in NC. He died 8 Nov 1918 in Prob. Sassafras Fork, Granville Co., NC.
They had the following children:
15 F i. Susan OWENS "Susie & Sue" was born 14 Feb 1892 in Granville Co., NC.
Susie & Sue married Cornelius VALENTINE "Neal" on 1909 in NC. Neal was born 1887/1888 in VA. "
