Wedding Wednesday: Alvin Still weds Catherine Leahy

Alvin Still is my 4th cousin. I have seen his name spelled Alban and also Alvan. In 1916 he married Catherine Leahy in Coatesville, Chester County.

The Coatesville Record (sadly, now defunct) used to run a section, as many papers do, in which it would re-print news from the past. On 5 August 1946, under the “30 years ago” heading, it ran the following:

Miss Catherine Leahy and Alvin Still, this city, were united in marriage.

Alban is the son of Robert and Albina Williams Still. Robert is the son of my 3rd great grandparents, George David and Sarah Bing Still. Catherine is the daughter of Henry and Clara Supplee Leahy.
