On This Day: July 5

1809: Henry Harris Gandy, Sr., my maternal 4th great-grandfather, married his second wife Sarah Harris in Trumbull County, Ohio. Here is how their marriage appears in the records:

Henry and his first wife Tamson Garrison (my 4th great-grandmother) had seven children before Tamson died: Abijah, Mary, Phoebe, Matilda (from whom I descend), George, Ruth, and Tamson. Henry fathered eight more children with Sarah.
