David C. James and Sarah Ann Nunn obtained a license to marry on 11 February 1850 Crittenden County. The bride's father, Ira Nunn, gave consent for the license to issue.[1]

The 1850 Crittenden County census shows D.C. James, age 21 and a clerk born in Tennessee and S.A. James, age 21 and born in Kentucky. Also living in the household was Thomas Nunn, age 24 and a merchant born in Kentucky.[2]
