Madness Monday: A Small Mystery Solved

I’m still working on figuring out my 2nd great-grandmother, Ella Jane Hattery.  She’s been driving me crazy for years.

My Genealogy Bank membership came in handy yet again and I solved the mystery of where/when she got married to a Mr. Rickman (one of at least 4 husbands).  She lived in Council Bluffs, IA – which is across the river from Omaha, NE (she may have lived there at times also).  The announcement of her marriage license was found there in the Omaha World Herald, dated April 16, 1904.  Now maybe I can send away for the marriage record.

I just love how it’s titled “Connubial Ventures”. :)

    Connubial somehow sounds rather naughty, like the word conjugal. I had to look it up in the dictionary. LOL!ReplyCancel

      It does, doesn’t it? And I had to look it up too! :)ReplyCancel
