There was a marriage in Culpeper Co, VA of a Laban Razer to a Harriet Sims on 1-15-1818. Could this be the same couple???

Assumed to be a child of this family since 1) this was the only other "Racer" family on the 1850 VA census index in what is now WV and 2) Laban, William, John L. and George A. Racer were all in Putnam Co, WV by 1870.

The Kanawha Republican

Died on Sunday the 27th ult. at 6 o'clock in the morning at the White Sulphur Springs, Virginia, the Honorable Lewis Summers, for more than 24 years past one of the Judges of the General Court of Virginia.
