father james Evans mechanical engineer
bride Alice Williams(this side I have traced back 5 generations)
Witness David lewis Griffiths and Mary Adealia Thomas.
Bride and groom lived at 27 Llanarth Street...
Pulling my hair out here!

Oh yes I too have come across people lying on certificates.
Spent all day going through passenger lists on ancestry and FMP. Rather thought Mary Adelia White would have appeared as she would have been an infant, but no luck for her or any of the family, whether a Lewis, Evans or White.
Hi Barbara, thanks
No certificate, may not be 100% right.
The granddaughter is his, sister Mary's daughter, from her first marriage, but un able to locate where she got married either time.
I was hoping there was an archive in Pennsylvania that was online and could find Williams baptism.
:confused:I have tried all the usual avenues,but I must be missing something. Can anyone please help.

Her mother is possible called Mary too.

Re: expression Philadelphia lawyer
Learn something new all the time.
The family had assumed it meant not a proper/real marriage. Maybe he was a devious character!
Where do I look to find marriages in Philadelphia?
