Re Marriage: please note that Family Tradition has marriage date as 12 Feb 1863. However, the official document shows license issued 11 Feb 1863 with both the marriage date and the filing date as 20 March 1863. I am going by the 12 Feb date because that is what has been passed down in the family, and it is my understanding that the 20 Mar date could be when the minister got around to doing the filing.
