Unfortunately, by examining the marriage certificates or transcripts, or by finding the couple on subsequent censuses, we can reject all of these candidates. Most proved to have been born with the surname BROWN, many were the wrong age, some were born in the wrong areas. None of the ladies mentioned in the marriage indexes could have been my missing ancestor.
