Forgot to mention something. So far, I have had just a real hard time
understanding it.................but, my grandfather; Arthur Moore married
the first time in 1905. He was twenty years old and his bride; Mollie Adair
was thirty-five!


Another of my ancestors; Joel Sinor was married first to a Sarah Henry in
1835. He was seventeen years old...........and she was seventy-four years

True story.

I realize that these marriages are not the norm, but nothing surprises me in
research! LOL

Subject: [ARIZARD-L] Nancy J. Black

> I've been looking and looking at all my Black family information, and the
only person I can come up with that might be Nancy's father is Abraham L.
Black, son of Thomas and Mary T. Byler Black. He would have been about 10
years younger than Harriet Trimble Creswell Wren. He was born 1833 and died
in the Civil War in 1864. So if they married, they conceived Nancy J. and
he went off to war and he died before she was born. I'm not saying this is
correct, just that it would be possible.
> It seems strange to me that John Newton Trimble, having had a family with
Mary Cooper and the children all raised when she died in March 1879, would
have taken in a 14 year old niece when there must have been other relatives
to care for her. But, he also had his first wife's mother and brother
living with him and his second wife, so maybe not so strange.
> The fact that Harriet Wren is listed in the Izard Co. Tax Records in 1861,
1865 and 1866 also makes it hard to believe she married a Mr. Black and had
Nancy J. As far as I can tell, no one has found Harriet with a daughter
named Nancy J. Black. Where did the information that Harriet was the mother
originate from? Does anyone know.
