WEDDING: Willey and Manley 1866

25 Aug

WEEKEND WEDDINGS  

CERTIFICATE: 1866 Marriage certificateToday’s tidbit is a scan of the original marriage certificate for my wife’s great-great-great grandparents: Jonas Willey and Mary J. Manley. Dated 25 December 1866 and signed by Rev. E. B. Torrey. At first I thought it said that the ceremony took place in Clara, Potter County, Pennsylvania; however it really reads that Jonas Willey and Mary J. Manley of Clara, Potter County, Pennsylvania.The full text reads:
“This is to certify that on this 25
day of December in the year of our
Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-six
Jonas Willey of _________________
state of _______________ and Mary J. Manley
of Clara, Potter County, Pa.
were by me united in the bonds of matri-
mony, according to the ordinance of God
and the laws of the state of Pennsylvania.
Rev. E.B. Torrey
Minister of the Gospel
