I created this BLOG for my MATHIS/MATHEWS AND SMITH Family Lines. Although these lines in my tree are a rich part of my History, they are a mystery to me. What I thought I knew is not so. I plan to put the puzzle together one Branch at a time!!
FEARLESS FEMALES: THE MARRIAGE OF MARINDA GRANBERRY
For National Womens History Month of March, The Accidental Genealogist Lisa Alzo came up with Fearless Females, and for today March 4 we have to post a marriage certificate or a marriage record and tell a little something about that marriage. So here goes:
This is the marriage certificate for my Great Grandmother Marinda Granberry to her first husband John Isiah Turner, they were married on November 26, 1904 in Lincoln County Mississippi in the city of BrookHaven. There was one child from this marriage, my Great Aunt Pauline Turner. It was a short marriage because John Isiah died at work June 15, 1904 in a milling accident at work. Marinda recieved $300.00 from his Workers Compensation Claim.
