According to the IGI, this occured 28 Dec. 1845 in Alton IL., but I believe the marriage location is more likely NY or OH. Both William and Mary were born in NY according to 1850-80 census records. First child, Ira S. Gere, was born in Ohio about Sept. 1846 (Fairfield OH according to his Civil War record). Mary's maiden name may be Schanck or Schenck according to one family history I found.
