Benjamin Butler's Richardson County Marriage-Witnesses?
This is the marriage register entry for Benjamin Butler and Nancy Jane Wolf from Richardson County, Nebraska, in 1864. I'm working on reading the last few lines of this document which indicate that the marriage took place "at my house in the City of..." and present were "Dan'l Wolf..." Any thoughts on the other witness?
We'll probably have a discussion of this in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues. This marriage provides slight citation issues as the page numbers are worn away from some of the pages.
