affidavit-blank
Return- State of Ohio, Holmes County I Certify, that on the 22 day of October 1886 Silas McCartney and Nancy Terry were legally joined in marriage by me a Minister of the Gospel C.D. Patterson no. 5776

Silas and Nancy “Nannie” Terry McCartney are my second great grand-parents. While I was transcribing this I realized that in my record, I had the marriage date as the 20th of  October. The source I have for this is a marriage record posted at FamilySearch.org.

In my best estimation the transcriber missed the fact that they didn’t get married on the same day that the liscense  was issued. Many of the other licenses were filled on the same day of issue. This is one very good example that having more then one proof in most important.

I also find it interesting that they were married by a C.D. Patterson and that Silas’ grand-parents, Isaiah and Lettice Hudders McCartney, were married by a J.B. Patterson. I wonder if they might be related to each other.  This just might be a fun side trip throught the records to see if they just might be kin.

While doing some research on the internet I came across this pdf file at the Holmes County Library Blog. Holmes County Library  containing a transcription of the 1886 marriage returns for that county from A to Z.

Happy Hunting!
