I wonder if they were "officially" married. The story I've heard from my older relatives is this: Rev. Lawrence (my GGrandfather) was doing work in the hill country for the Episcopal church. Mary Elise was dying of something, and he wanted to be her in home caretaker, but back in those days young men did not just move in with young women, so they got married in order to be proper. I wouldn't have even known about this except for the Highlands cemetery survey that has been posted online for some time. Apparently Rev. Lawrence purchased what is described as a "large headstone" for Mary Elise. I have been trying to figure out more about her for about a decade.
