I am trying to clear up some marriage records I found on the Russell Co Va genweb site.
The following children belong to NICHOLAS HONAKER, son of Martin Jr & Nancy ; and ANNA HOBBS , daughter of John & Nancy HObbs.
I know from the census that Jane listed in 1870 is listed as Matilda Jane in 1880 census of New Garden, Russell Co Va census. Also, Margaret listed in 1870 census is Maggie in 1880 census. Nancy Cordelia is often referred to as Nannie. :
According to online marriage records; Russell Co VA;
Jane Honaker, daughter of Nick and Nannie, who I Believe should be Nick and Annie; Jane is age 25 and listed as widow, marries Joseph Rossi age 25; on May 1 1889.
This should be Matilda Jane, yet there is another marriage in March 23, 1888, of Matilda Honaker age 20 (wrong age, should be 24) daughter of Nickolas and Annie marries Benjamin Blankenship age 50 from Kan. Co WV.
IS THIS THE SAME GIRL; LOOKS LIKE IT; DID OLD BEN DIE IN THE FIRST YEAR AND SHE REMARRIED ?????
ANOTHER MARRIAGE IS: Nannie HOnaker age 18 marries Thomas Perry age 24 born New York, with Nannie listed as daughter of Nick and Nannie instead of Nick and Annie. marriage date, May 1 1889 say day as her sister.
If anyone could help me with any further information on these marriages I would appreciate it .
A descendant of Anna and Nicholas HOnaker says his grandfather visited Thomas Perry and Nannie and also Jane and Joseph Rossi in Chicago Ill, where Nannie died in 1946.
I am also trying to find out who the other sister married, Margaret Honaker called Maggie born 1868 to Nicholas and Annie Hobbs Honaker.
If anyone would have this info, please write
