(Long Island)

Long Island New York: Certificate framed and glazed in an old wood surround; with a nice engraved vignette of a gerneric wedding ceremony; The couple were joined in marriage by Minster of the Gospel Thomas G. Osborn; blanks filled in form all in the same very legible hadn in blue ink; approx.10" x 12" overall framed size, document smaller; interestingly, the spaces for the witnesses are left blank; some wear and chipping to frame; some spotting and aging to document; in good condition and interesting ephemera for nineteenth-century Long Island genealogy history for Hawkins-Lane families and also of sociological interest for the marriage ceremony and its depiction in art. Very Good (Item ID: 15441)
