Note on source

The witness name was hard to read. It seems pretty clear that it starts as "Els" but I couldn't decipher the next character. Also the "es" is clear and ends in either an 'h' or 't'. Also notice the brides name is spelled "Muson" in the record while the father is "Musson." I searched for other records both in Effingham and in the rest of the state. Based on frequency I believe "Musson" is the correct spelling.
