Mariah* married Horace* FOUSHEE, son of Family FOUSHEE and Unknown, before 1828. (Horace* FOUSHEE was born between 1800 and 1810 in North Carolina, United States 4547 and died between 1846 and 1848 3493,4551.)

  Noted events in their marriage were:

1. Disproved Marriage. There is a marriage of Charles S Fooshee and Mariah Dowd on 13 Nov 1839, listed in Chatham County NC Marriages 1772-1868 by Brent Holcomb. This would seem to prove that Charles and Mariah could not be the parents of Frances, who was born in 1836.
