Today In Genealogy History – July 8

Two of my great-grandparents were married today!

Tabitha Edwards and Richard Spalding were married 208 years ago – July 8, 1805 – in Washington County, Kentucky.  They had at least one daughter, Mary Magdalene Spalding.  Richard and Tabitha are my 3rd great-grandparents, and I know very little about them.

Arena Kidd and Henry A. Matherly were married 164 years ago – July 8, 1849 – in Washington County, Kentucky.  They had 3 children:  Mountford, Hartford and Mandy Matherly.  I descend from Arena’s first marriage to Tillotson Ross, married 1824, in Madison County, Kentucky.  They are also my 3rd great-grandparents.
