From Marriages of Etowah County, Alabama Prior to 1900 Vol I . Earlene found it in Gadsden some where and I have a copy of the two pages with NIX Marriages. Book C Page 033-B. Record shows her MI as E. not A. But this has been a problem with all of the records. Never sure of her MI.

OLD MOUNT MORIAH CEMETERY, BLOUNT COUNTY, ALABAMA This was done 1985. Located north of Oneonta, nearly four miles on County Highway 39 in Murphree Valley, off Highway 75. On private property. The Old Mouriah Church was moved to Fridays Crossing in Blount County, Alabama. There were two separate sites. One just has a mound of rocks, the other I found had at least twenty graves that I was able to get information from. These are not in any set order.
