Treasure Chest Thursday - 1855 Marriage License copy

This is a copy of the marriage license for Michael Smith, my great-grandfather, in Rock Island, Illinois, for his first marriage, to Lena Harbrecht, several years before he went off to the Civil War: 3 Aug 1855.

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Marriage certificates are my favorite records to obtain. This one is particularly nice!
