I recently obtained the following record about my GGgrandparents from an LDS microfilm of vital records of Greenfield, Franklin Co, MA:"Intention of marriage between Rufus Reniff of this town [Greenfield] and Louisa Goodell of Belchertown were entered Nov. 16 1838. Att. H. Seewill[?] Town Clerk" I am just starting research of this GOODELL connection and the only references to GOODELL's in Belchertown at WorldConnect and the LDS Family Search databases is the Moses GOODELL family. Moses has a daughter Lovicy GOODELL b. 18 apr 1816 Belchertown, d. 20 nov 1838.
Is there any possibility that this Lovicy is the same as Louisa, but the purported death date is in fact the marriage date??? Or are there other GOODELL families in Belchertown who might have had a daughter Louisa?Lovicy's date of birth is about right for a marriage to Rufus RENIFF who was b. ~1814.Any help would be appreciated.
