    I found this document in a nice frame. I'm not sure of the exact name and spelling but I THINK it says.....
    "This is to certify that on the 20th March AD 1878, before me one of the Justice of the Peace in and for in the County of Pike, F. M. Price of Barret Township, Monroe County Penna and Lizzie Roke ? of Greene Township Pike County Penna were join in marriage. They declaring themselves clear of all engagements or other lawful impediments and taking each other for husband and wife according to law. I have hereunto set my hand and seal at Greene the day and year above written.
    Peter Gorey, Justice of the Peace
    Witnesses: James C Curiland, ??

      Found Peter Corey and his son Alvan!

      No luck so far on Lizzie Roke or FM Price.
      Could it be James C Carlbom? (Swedish name)
    2. OlofZ OlofZ, 8 years ago
      No doubt it's Corey, though, since both Peter and son Alvan Corey are mentioned in the document from the same township.
      Witness name Could be Carlbon as well, as there are a few with that name listed. If it was "Carlton", the "t" in "Carlton" has an extra twist to it and the dash is a bit too high above the t, right?
    3. OlofZ OlofZ, 8 years ago
      Great find, there he is! Carlton it must be. Census is from 1870, right? So Alvan would be 14-15 in 1878.
