Wedding Wednesday: Durkin weds Douglass in Newark

My second great grandmother was born a Durkin but I know little of her before she came to America. Every so often I do a broad search for Durkins. Here I can across a Phebe Matilda Durkin.

The announcement – as transcribed:

At Newark, NJ, on the 11th inst. By the Rev. J. Ayars, Mr. Wm Douglas, formerly of Philadelphia, to Miss Phebe Matilda Durkin.

The marriage announcement appeared on page two of the Public Ledger, a Philadelphia paper, on 17 April 1839.

Wedding Wednesday is a genealogical prompt of GeneaBloggers.
