Hoping someone may offer some assistance. I am looking for a record of a marriage between
a David Simpson and Elizabeth Gilmore for July 25, 1850 or 1851.
I have looked through the Church records that are available for that time period, with no
luck. Her attestation in her Civil War Pension indicates that she was "married at
Port Richmond New York on July 25, 1850 by Rev. Mr. Brownlee, minister of the Gospel"
It does not state that she was married in a Church; but all of her children were baptised
by Rev. Brownlee in the reformed church there.
I know that Rev. Brownlee served in the Church for decades, but there marriage does not
appear in any sources for that time frame. Any suggestions?
