Fearless Females - March 4 - Fanny KINNICK LYON

Fearless Females - March 4 
Fanny KINNICK LYON

Once again, in honor of National Women’s History Month (http://www.nwhp.org/whm/history.php), Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog (http://www.theaccidentalgenealogist.com/) presents Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.
March 4 — 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.


This is actually the Marriage License form, front and back, of the youngest daughter of Susan SCHWYHART KINNICK (discussed in Fearless Females - March 1). This document is the first on which I actually saw SCHWYHART spelled correctly for the first time. See line 14. Mother's Maiden Name on the back side of the license. What a treasure trove of information on just this one document. It was well worth the seven dollars I believe it cost, at the time, to get this copy from the County Clerk.


What a joy it was to see this information, at the time!  ;-)

See more interesting story on this family here.


Families are Forever!  ;-)
