A Marriage

In New Kent county, on the 12th of January, by the Rev. Mr. Turner, Mr. Thomas C. Wilkse, company F. Third Virginia cavalry, to Mollie P., the second daughter of John E. Epps, of Richmond, Virginia.

-The Daily Dispatch- January 21, 1865.

This should be the 25 year old Charles Thomas Wilks, son of Abner Wilks and his wife Mary. Sometimes spelled Wilks, sometimes Wilkes, depending on what record you consult.
Company F, Third Virginia Cavalry was of course the New Kent Cavalry or New Kent Dragoons.
