Fearless Females - Family Document

March 9 — Take a family document (baptismal certificate, passenger list, naturalization petition, etc.) and write a brief narrative using the information.

This is the marriage certificate for Royce Rufus Councill and Edna Catherine Willis. They were married on June 25, 1925 in Chestertown, Maryland by W. Gibson. Chestertown is the county seat of Kent County, so I'm not sure what the CEC1 stamped in the county name means, although there is a neighboring Cecil County. I've seen Royce's name in some online trees as Rufus Royce Councill and notice here that his name is given as R. Royce Councill. However, his birth certificate says Royce Rufus and he was listed as Royce in other documents and newspaper clippings that I've seen.

Once again, in honor of National Women’s History Month, Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog presents Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.
