Marriage record of Hoult & Carlson!
Posted by: Donna Corlett Date: September 13, 2000 at 20:10:01

Hi! I am looking to obtain a marriage record for an ancestor that lived in Franklin county.
The HOULT family emigrated to the USA (from England) in 1882. The parents names were William & Lucy Hoult (maiden name Sproxton).
One of their children was Harriet Elizabeth Hoult, born on February 12,1880.
She married a Swedish emigrant by the name of August Carlson. August emigrated to Canada-but some old family records show a number of trips into the USA (to Franklin, courting her perhaps?!).

I have searched the provinces (2) in Canada where August had lived...and no marriage record exists for the couple in the files. Then I thought, if her family was all there in Franklin county, Washington (August was the only one left here from Sweden)...then they likely married where the "family" was, wouldn't you think?

August was established in Nanaimo, British Columbia and thus the couple ended up I know that is where they went/lived/had children.
I would love to locate their marriage record...and suggestions on how to do this? Are there any volunteers who could look it up-and/or indexes that are searchable? The marriage is most likely to have occurred sometime between 1895-1899. Are records "open" (accessible)after 100 years- like most are here?

Hopeful for help!
