Marriage about 1865 in Elmira
Posted by: Jody McKenney Thomson (ID *****9581) Date: July 18, 2010 at 10:25:31

I have searched the online records and have not found an important marriage record. Is there anyone living in Elmira who would be willing to do a look-up for me? I am happy to pay!!

About 1865 (give or take a year) JACOB GARRIT/GARRETT, (and other spellings!) married KATE unknown-last-name. She was always Kate in the census records from 1870 when they first appeared in the Federal Census for Elmira until at least the 1918 draft registration for her son when she was listed as the nearest relative. . . never Catherine or Katharine or Kathleen . . . always Kate.

Jacob Garrett was the son of Truman Garrett and Jane Comfort who had married in 1836. Truman's death in 1874 mentioned that "he was one of the earliest settlers of Elmira".

Can anyone help, please?
