Hi everyone. I just found out today from my ggggrandfather's civil war pension records that he was married to an Eliza Yoxtheimer. Eliza was born 1819, in Pa., and died Oct. 1862 in Wysox, Bradford Co. Pa. She was married to George Nichols, and they got married on Jan. 3, 1838 in Lycoming Co., Pa. They were married by the Justice of the Peace, John Mahaffrey. Two witnesses that came forward on the pension records that stated they were at the wedding were Lydia Bailey and ELizabeth Reed. George and Eliza's children were:
Mary- born March 2, 1840, married #1, Joel Allis, #2 Frank Holmes Jeremiah- born c. 1843- died in the Civil War Amanda- born June 2, 1845, married Herbert Barnes Maria- born March 14, 1847, married George Wickizer Hiram- born May 31, 1849 Alvin- born March 6, 1851 Mary Jane- born March 9, 1853 Franklin- born Dec. 8, 1855, married Etta Brink Isaac- born January 12, 1857 Jefferson- born Jan. 3, 1861
George Nichols died May 23, 1864 during a battle of the Civil War.
If anyone knows anything about Eliza or her family, I would love to hear from you.
