1823 Marriage:1514 Recorded as marriage of Elias Tracy and Naomi Morey, 6 November 1823, Licking County, by John Peters, the J.P. for Bennington Township, Licking County. The 1834 petition1242 to sell the lands of Abraham Morey at his death clearly listed "Arthur Briggs and Polly his wife, late Polly Morey; Elias Tracy and Nancy his wife, late Nancy Morey." The transcribed marriage records of Licking County, re-constructed in 1878 following two fires in the courthouse in Newark, Ohio, list the marriage of Elias Tracy and Polly Morey365 on 13 September 1818. The ceremony was performed by Alexander Holden, who dated the marriage return 19 October 1818. Elias Tracy is also, apparently correctly, listed as marrying Naomi Morey on 6 November 1823. Since the 1834 petition to settle the estate1242 of Abraham Morey clearly identifies "Arthur Briggs and Polly his wife, late Polly Morey" and "Elias Tracy and Nancy his wife, late Nancy Morey," it is assumed that this transcribed marriage record, reconstructed about 60 years after the fact, confused the husband of the two Morey daughters and that the 13 September 1818 marriage was actually Arthur Briggs and Polly Morey. In the 1850 census enumeration, Arthur Briggs2416 and wife Mary were residing in adjacent Knox County while Elias Tracy2418 and wife Naomi were living in Allen County.
