I've "rescued" the original marriage certificate for R. H. RYAN or Wheeling,
West Virginia and his bride Catharine JENNINGS of West Union, West Virginia
who were married on the 1st of July 1867. The marriage was officiated by
Pastor Cal H. LAKIN and witnessed by a number of others who signed the
certificate as well including, C. C. DAVIS; M. B. JENNINGS; I. N. MCCORMICK;
Howard JENNINGS; H. C. FOLEY; J. W. STEVEN; and Hiram JENNINGS.
Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information
regarding this couple and their families:
Catherine Aleen JENNINGS was b. 12 May 1843 in Turkeyfoot Township, PA to
parents David JENNINGS (b. 27 May 1790 in Turkeyfoot Township, PA) and
Catherine REAM (b. 1794). Catherine first married Abraham CULLUMBER (b. 12
Jul 1835 in Hocking Co. OH) and with Abraham had one child, a son David Ream
CULLUMBER b. 1861 in Somerset Co. PA. Catherine's second marriage was to
Rueben Henry RYAN (b. 1836 in MI the son of David & Mary RYAN).
Reuben and Catherine had three children including, Earl; Charles D.; and
Norma Isabella RYAN all born between 1868 and 1879 in Wheeling, WV; and Tama
I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the certificate can
be returned to their care. If you are a member of this family, or you know
someone who might be, please contact me.
