I would think that would have been quite a handsome dowry back then

Subject: FER-GOLD Marriage Dowry - 1755 Fermanagh.
Whilst re-reading an article sent to me many years ago
by a Drumduff/Derryvullan North - Elliott researcher,
I found two questions that I hope a lister can answer.
Records held by the Latter Day Saints, show a James Elliott
living at Drumduff in 1755 prior to his marriage to a
Catherine's dowry to the marriage, was 10 cows in calf and
a mare and a foal.
(David??) Where would dowry information be held at the LDS?
Catherine Crozier's dowry, would that be a typical dowry,
a girl brought to her marriage to a farmer, in those days?
The 18 acre Elliott Drumduff farm in 1821, was held by three
brothers and their families, possibly sons of James and Catherine.
