marriage

I just love the quirkiness of a Leap Year wedding, don’t you? One hundred and ninety years ago, my 3rd great grandparents were married on 29 February 1824 at the Manchester Cathedral in Manchester, England.

Thomas Williamson
born about 1803 in Manchester, England
died 20 September 1849 in Rochester, Monroe, New York
Margaret Pollitt
born about 1803 in Manchester, England
died April 1856 in Rochester, Monroe, New York
