I have copies of the Certificates of Marriage for both of my great great
grandfather's marriages from his church.
Michael Malloy married my gg.grandmother Mary Ellen Gahagan on Jan. 8,
1888. Mary died and Michael remarried. The second bride was Euphemie
Louise Dube and that marriage took place on Nov. 21, 1897. Both marriages took
place at the Holy Rosary Church in Caribou.
I sent to the City of Caribou to get copies of the marriage
licenses. The city wrote back, sent a copy of the second marriage
license but only sent me a photo copy of the marriage intention that was
listed in some record book. They also returned the money for that document
that they did not locate.
But I have a few questions......
I have a copy of a record I obtained through Family Search which confirms
the marriage of Michael and Mary on Jan. 7, 1888. I also have a batch number
of M520462. So doesn't that mean that someone documented this marriage
Do you think the one day, Jan 7 vs Jan 8 could have made it difficult for
the clerk to find the document?
Also, the record from Family Search has the place of the marriage as Fort
Fairfield, but doesn't Caribou hold the records for Fort Fairfield? The
church was in Caribou.
I want the documents so I can go back another generation, hopefully to
Ireland, and determine who Michael Malloy's parents were. I know Michael
was married to both of these women and if I had the documents to show who he
was and who his parents were it would just confirm everything for me.
I know....lots of questions. Hope someone can help me out with the
