On This Day: July 12

1849: My maternal 2nd great-grandparents, Joseph Franklin and Rhoda Cary, were married in Union County, Ohio. A copy of the entry in the marriage register follows:

The officiant at the marriage Abijah Gandy, Justice of the Peace, was Rhoda’s uncle, her mother’s brother.

Joseph and Rhoda had five children who lived to adulthood: Ruth (from whom I descend), Nancy, Richard, Fannie, and David.
