Amos Chaffee married Mary Curtis 1834. There's a record on a certain site but unable to view. I'm interested if Mary's fathers name is on the record.

Thanks. :)

Hi Julie

Unfortunately it doesn't give either parents name on the marriage details...

That said, the way the image is listed looks quite helpful, e.g. under Chaffee/e: Amos s. of Amos and Harmony b. 14 Oct 1806; V4, P116. Also Amos m. Harmony Crary 1 Oct 1797; V4, P116. Interesting they are both on same page :rolleyes:

Listed under Curtis..

The only birth for a Mary is this: Mary d. Samuel and Mary b. 18 Apr 181[]; V6, P21, possibly suggesting the transcriber couldn't read the 4th number of the year.

Hope this helps.

Geoff

Somehow they have the wrong Mary Curtis. Looking at the 1870/880 censuses she was born in Connecticut. I have sent a message to one of the family tree owners but I don't expect a reply.

Can't see it being the Mary Curtis 1814 Kent. Not many have the year of Birth right on Census ,also she would have been a minor in 1834,so Father's permission needed.:) Social standing at that time ,was most women were not allowed out by themselves in England. As they were expected to marry then little if any schooling given. Would also have needed Father's permission to emigrate.

Hi Ellie,

Mary has always given her pob as Upstreet and her age has been quite consistent. Just clearing something up as Mary's father isn't on her marriage certificate. She is the only Mary Curtis with the right details born to Samuel and Sarah nee Lewis. I'm 99 percent certain that the baptism is the right one. Also I can't see a young female travelling by herself to the US. 2 of her Brothers ended up in Michigan.

Many thanks for your input. :)

Hi Ellie,

I do have baptisms and census records. What was niggling me is that Mary's fathers name wasn't on the marriage certificate and with the wrong information on some family trees I just wanted to clarify fathers name. I still think it's parents Samuel and Sarah. Perhaps I'll never be 100 percent sure.

Julie. :)
