While looking through many blogs in the last few months, I found one that I liked at Kentucky Kindred Genealogical Research (KentuckyKindred) called “Today In Genealogy History” by Phillis Brown. I am going to change this up a bit and do what I am going to call Friday Family History on This Day. Instead of a daily posting I will be going through my genealogy calendar on Friday and picking one event on that day. I can see this not being a weekly by-line as there will be Fridays on the calendar that will be quiet. Join me on this adventure. My first offering is below:
Mary J. Sanders is my husbands 1st cousin three times removed.
On this day, Sept 23, in 1875 she married Meredith Benjamin Martin son of William and Anna Davis Martin. The marriage took place at the home of her parents Wade Hillard and Hannah Potter Sanders in Pike Co., Kentucky.
Meredith married a second time. I have conflicting information about Mary’s death date. So I am not sure if it was a divorce or death that brought this marriage to an end.
Isn’t that funny you solve one question only to find another!
