Luther Mefford m. Charlotte Garland 14 Jul 1851 Marshall Co. AL by D. T. Sutton Page 206-28. He is listed as Mifford. He and Charlottle are next on the 1860 Jackson Co. as Mefferd b. TN Charlotte b. KY. Since he was not old enogh to appear on the earlier census by himself there are to Jacob Mefford listed on the 1830/40 in TN and Luther named his first son Jacob it is likely that one of those is his father. There are two Jacob Mefford in KY on earlier census.
I could not find Charlotte Garland on the 1850.
