Good Morning Richard
I would suggest that assumption is dangerous. I have an ancestor right down
the road from you in Lynchburg who married the younger of two sisters in 1868.
She died shortly after childbirth in 1873 and he then married the older of
the two sisters in 1874. I had to track this through obits in the local paper
after first combing the cemetery family plots. Fortunately they had one large
section and when I found names I did not recognize I went to the cemetery
records, funeral home records, and then the newspapers. To me the curious thing
about the whole relationship is he was from County Clare, Ireland, and they were
from FallsRiver MA. and they got together in Lynchburg.
