Many beautiful and valuable presents were received from their many friends. The fact of the invalid mother of the bride being able to be present, added not a little to the enjoyment of the occasion. Congratulations and good wishes for their future success in life, are tendered them by the many friends of both parties, and may their life bark glide smoothly o'er lifes matrimonial sea, with never a cloud to dim the brightness of their happiness.
The following large group of marital notices was donated by Carol Grainger. Carol is not related to anyone herein, but graciously contributes wonderful items to us just to help someone and had temporary access to a copy of these records. These local marriages were found in Ray Cowen Sawyer's well-known 1931 compilation Marriages Published in the Christian Intelligencer of the Reformed Dutch Church From 1830 to 1871. Copies of Mr. Sawyer's ambitious newspaper records abstraction undertaking, which includes DRC marriages through the U.S., are available for your viewing at larger U.S. genealogy libraries, including the local history room at the New York Public Library at 5th & 42nd, the NYGBS in New York City, and the NEHGS in Boston, or ask your local library about interlibrary loan of microfilm.
