Found another fun record today that made me do a happy dance. Then I made myself use my newly created "Document management system" and spent a couple hours making sure its properly sourced and attached where it needs to be. I realized that I could probably work about 4 months on my Rinker line and barely make a dent in it. I've got some real work to do there, thanks to finding some really awesome genealogy buff Rinker cousins. They sent me ALOT of stuff to process and attach. I also received an entire large envelope of Rinker photos that I know fit in my tree somewhere, but I haven't exactly figured out where yet. But I will start on it! Anyway. Here is the cool record I found. First, who is it? This marriage record belongs to my great-great-grandparents.
Kyla Ogle - Dolores Peggy Jane Granath my mom - Blanche Ella Goodwin my grandma - Ella Jane Rinker my great-grandma- then the 2 in this record are Ella Jane's parents:
"To the Judge of the Probate Court of the County of Champaige, Ohio. Married on the 6th day of October A.D. 1853 Samuel H Rinker and Mary Ann Pinkerton by me, Enos French, M.G. "
(Minister of the Gospel)
From the Marriage Records of the Probate Court of Champaign County, Urbana, Ohio, 1849 to 1856, Book E. Found on FamilySearch.org: "Early Marriage Bonds of Ohio, copied by the DAR"
More on this family branch soon!
