    • The Pioneer History of Wise County
      JAMES A. PROCTOR, b. 7-3-1829, Rockcastle County, Ky. d. 11-19-1912, Bridgeport, Wise County, Texas

      Married MARY (POLLY) HUNT, b. 6-?-1836 Rockcastle, KY, died 11-3-1907. Child of William Perrin's second wife. The Perrin family moved to Texas in 1853, arriving in Wise Co. the day before Christmas, 1854. James accompanied them because he wanted to marry Mary, but she was too young at the time.

      Rockcastle County, KY 1850 census verifies James A. Proctor, Mary (Hunt) Perrin, and their families. They lived next door to each other.

      James and Mary married in Cooke County, Texas, Jan. 4, 1856 (Cooke Co. Marriage Records) They were the first couple to be married there. The marriage took place at the home of Ben Haney at Old Aurora, a distance of 15 miles from the home of the principals reached by horseback. Ben Haney was the authorized official in charge of Wise Co. territory affairs.




      J.A. PROCTOR (By Mary Cates Moore; from The Messenger of 1956):

      J.A. Proctor was born in 1829 in Kentucky. He and his wife, the former Mary Hunt, were both from Rock Castle County, Kentucky. Both came to Texas the same year and to Wise County the following year, 1854.

      They were the first couple to be married in Wise County. His original land pre-emption was the 160 acres on which most of Decatur now stands, which he donated for the location of the County seat. The Proctors then moved to Sweetwater Creek and several years later to Old Bridgeport, which became their permanent home. And so it was because of the generosity of a Bridgeport citizen that Decatur grew atop its hill.
