Can anyone give me documented proof of the parents of this Rebecca Jane Henrietta Bretz who is supposed to have married Sylvester Warfield Groshong in Kansas Territory?
Also any documented proof of the name Rebecca Jane Henrietta Bretz.All I have been able to find so far is this:
Sylvester Groshong - Rebecca Bretts I do hereby certify that on the 24th day of August A.D. 1862 at the house of Stephen Ogan in the County of Jackson and State of Kansas, Sylvester Groshong and Rebeckah J. Bretts both of Said County and State above written, to me personally known to be the persons described in this certificate, were by me joined together with their mutual consent in the bonds of wedlock and I did ascertain the consent of the parents of the parties above described. Witness my hand this the 24th day of August A.D. 1862 Joseph Rogers Pastor of the Church of the United Brethern in Christ Filed for Record November 10th A.D. 1862 Ira I. Taber Co. Clerk By Amos Landen, Deputy
Nothing in the above suggests that HER name is Rebecca Jane HENRIETTA Bretz and nothing suggests the HIS name is Sylvester WARFIELD Groshong.
I believe that this Rebecca J. Bretz is the daughter of Abigail/Abigale MILLER who married Henry J. Bretz, (don't know where or when).I believe that Abigale is the daughter of David Seal MILLER and wife Catherine of Halifax Twp, Dauphin Co., PA and David Seal MILLER is the son of Christiana MILLER.Source: 1850 census of Halifax Twp., Dauphin Co., PA 3 Sep 1850 listing Henry S. Bretz, Abigail, Rebecca J. living in household of Christiana Miller age 70, Widow, along with others listed above.
