John Thomas DOVE
J. Missouri CHAMBLER
Mary C. WALLACE
Husband:  John Thomas "Tom" DOVE
Birth:  22 Jun 1849, Madison Co., GA
Death:  18 Jan 1919, Elbert Co., GA
Disposition:  buried Bethlehem Cemetery, Elberton, Elbert Co., GA
Occupation:  farm laborer
Brother:  Benjamin Franklin DOVE, b. ca. 1841; d. 1 Jun 1862, Knoxville, Knox Co., TN
Father:  John DOVE (1810-1901)
Mother:  Sarah Elizabeth "Sallie" SAYLORS (1813-1886)
Marriage-1:  8 Jul 1866, Franklin Co., GA
Wife-1:  J. Missouri CHAMBLER
Birth:  1846/7, GA
Occupation:  homemaker

Some have asserted that Missouri is the daughter of Benjamin CHAMBLER, but I find no evidence to document the connection.  While Benjamin is found in the 1860 census of Franklin Co., GA (q.v.), he has no spouse or children with him.  I cannot find Benjamin in 1850, nor can I find Missouri in either 1850 or 1860, so the identity of her parents remains unknown.  I wouldn't make too much of the fact that she named her first child, Benjamin, because John had a brother, Benjamin Franklin DOVE, who died in the Civil War, and it is said this son was named for him.
