Marriage Certificate


Here is the Certificate of Marriage of my great-grandfather, Charles F. Whitney, and my great-grandmother, Anna Elizabeth Hall.


The writing is a little faded, but that's understandable, considering that it was written in 1880. They were married in Menard County, Illinois. I think that John T. Hall and Laura F. Hall are Anna's parents, my great-great-grandparents.

I especially like the picture of the bride, groom, and their attendants at the top of the certificate. Don't they look elegant? Those dresses look complicated, don't they? I dig the groom's sideburns!
