Scan_Pic0294The  Commonwealth of Kentucky:  To any minister of the gospel, or any other person legally authorized to solemnize matrimony:  You are permitted to solemnize the Rites of Matrimony between Zay Hill and Miss Emeline Coulter, the requirements of the law having been complied with.  Witness my signature as Clerk of Washington County Court this 24th day of August, 1904.  W. T. Booker, Clerk.

This is to certify that on the 24th day of August, 1904, the Rites of Matrimony were legally solemnized by me between Zay Hill and Miss Emeline Coulter at Springfield, in the county of Washington, in the presence of Jonah Hardin and John Hardin, signed, Albert T. Felix, minister.

Isaiah ‘Zay’ Hill and Emeline Coulter are my great uncle and great aunt – being the brother and sister of my paternal grandparents, Jessie Delbert Hill and Nannie Bell Coulter – siblings married siblings!  They are the children of Isaiah Hill and Lydia Ann Ross, and George R. Coulter and Mary Elizabeth Crow.

Taken from the 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 census records of Marion County the children of Zay and Emeline are as follows:  Irvine, George, Otis, Hubert, Nellie Gladys, Mary A., Frank, Eugene, Estelle, Anna and Isaiah, Jr.

Isaiah ‘Zay’ Hill died August 9, 1942, in Marion County, Kentucky.  I do not have a death date for his wife, Emeline.
