This marriage record is for my great-great grandfather, Daniel C. Fenn and his first wife, Jane E. Poor.
Daniel C. Fenn and Jane E. Poor were married on 4 March 1846. Jane died 12 April 1848, at the young age of 18. Daniel then married Jane's older sister, Elizabeth Ann Poor. I find it interesting that I have found the marriage record for his first marriage in 1846, but I am unable to find his second marriage record. I have estimated his marriage to Elizabeth Poor as between 12 April 1848 (Jane's death date) and 19 Nov 1850 (when first son, Zalton, is born). I guess their marriage record is just waiting to be found.
