Contributed by Christy Hodges

The information below was extracted from various Erie newspapers of the 1800s and early 1900s. I am told that E.D. = Erie Dispatch; E.O. = Erie Observer; and E.G. = Erie Gazette. Information has been provided by Christy Hodges, unless otherwise indicated. I have tried to present the information in a table, adding a column for the surname of the Groom and Bride. The remainder of the information is as provided, with only minimum editing. (Bill Klauk/Feb 2001)
