William Cullen Bryant m. Frances Fairchild: Jan. or Jun 1821?

Sources are confused regarding the date of Bryant's marriage to Frances Fairchild in Great Barrington, MA. I think that the source of the confusion lies in these two conflicting sources.

The VR of Gt Barrington says 11 January 1821: http://tinyurl.com/2o5vyf

His 1883 biographer (and son-in-law), Parke Godwin, says 11 June 1821: p.169 http://www.questia.com/read/98851642

I believe this was a typographical error on the part of Mr Godwin. On the next page, he makes reference to an event that happened "a few months after his marriage" in April of that year. p.170 http://www.questia.com/read/98851643

I take this a conclusive evidence for the 11 Jan 1821 date!

-R.
