The Marriage

November 4, 1860

That next record I happened to run across is what is probably the marriage record between James Collins and his wife, Elizabeth Enyart/Engart. Though, it was in an unexpected place, Missouri. This is where my previous research had become “compromised” because I found a James Collins in that area previous to the marriage which went against the original James Collins I found in the 1860 Census. The marriage lines up better than the previous info, so that’s my primary line of research at the moment.

It says they were married on November 4th, 1860 in Scotland County, Missouri.

The source image is very hard to read, but on the top record at the left you can see what looks like Jas Collins and Elisabeth Enyart.
