March 3 — Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when. Any family stories about the wedding day? Post a photo too if you have one.. Thank you to Lisa over at The Accidental Genealogist for supplying a month's worth of prompts celebrating Women's History Month.
I have decided to feature my maternal great grandparents marriage records for this blog. I noticed that I was deficient in scanning many of their records two weeks ago while participating in the 2010 Winter GeneaBloggers Olympics. In fact, their marriage records were two items that I scanned and added to the external hard drive.
Alfred Frederick and Lucinda Orr were born and raised in Columbiana County, Ohio--Lucinda in Elkrun Township and Alfred in Franklin Square, Salem Township. Alfred was the son of Joseph C. Frederick and Mary Betz; Lucinda was the daughter of William Morlan Orr and Nancy Cannon. How they met is unknown, although there are other marriages in the area between the Frederick and Orr families, so perhaps they met at a mutual family gathering.
Alfred and Lou were issued a marriage license in Columbiana County on October 19, 1868 by Solomn J. Firestone, Probate Judge. They were married on October 22, 1868 by Rev. James Reinhart in Columbiana County, Ohio.
The Marriage Record was obtained by me through the Columbiana County, Ohio records office. The Marriage License was kindly sent to me by another Frederick descendant who had it among her family records.
