    1870 Gordon Songer & Elizabeth Kipps Marriage Certificate
    1870 Marriage Certificate from Montgomery Co, Virginia

    Dated March 16, 1870 for the certificate, however, the date of the marriage is listed as March 17, 1870. Gordon is listed as 60 years old, and Elizabeth is 27 years old.

    Gordon's residence at that time was listed as Macon County, Illinois

    Gordon's parents are listed as: Jacob and Eve Songer

    Elizabeth's parents are listed as: Jacob and Elizabeth Kipps



    Gordon and Elizabeth's original marriage certificate was handed down through the family and eventually resided with Nora Songer, who was single. During Nora's move to Chicago, Illinois, her nephew was able to make a copy of the certificate, which explains why the copy we have available is a scan of a copy. It is assumed that the original marriage certificate was thrown out with Nora's papers when she died.

    NOTES:
    Where is Jesse Edwards Songer? For some reason, he does not appear in the 1880 census with his parents. He would have been 4 years old, so I can't imagine why he would be living else where - but he is not listed with the family.
