According to "Ancestry's Redbook" Pike County, Alabama lost it records in 1830, probably to fire. This might explain the apparent discrepancy in Jeremiah and Mary's marriage date between the Pike County Marriage records and her pension application. After the original record was destroyed by fire, they may have gone back in 1836 and got a new license as proof of marriage for whatever reason.
