Treasure Chest Thursday - 1822 Marriage of Thomas Partridge (1758-1828) and Catharine Kelley (1765-1832) of Gustavus, Ohio

   It's Treasure Chest Thursday - an opportunity to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history research and genealogy musings.

The treasure today is the 1822 marriage entry for Thomas Partridge and Catherine Kelley in the Trumbull County, Ohio marriage records:

The marriage record is the third one down the right-hand page of the image:

This is an entry in the Trumbull County, Ohio marriage register book for the marriage of  Thomas Partroidge and Catharine Kelley on 12 November 1822.

Thomas Partridge (1758-1828) was born 15 December 1758 in Guilford, Windham County, Vermont, the son of Jasper and Mary Hannah (Rice) Partridge.  He died 1 October 1828 in Gustavus, Trumbull County, Ohio.  Thomas married (1) Hannah Wakeman (1763-1814) on 2 October 1785 in New York.  They had 11 children.

Thomas Partridge married (2) to Catharine (Kelley) Pelton (1765-1832) on 12 November 1822 in Gustavus, Ohio.  They had no children. 

Thomas and Hannah (Wakeman) Partridge are my 5th great-grandparents, including my 4th great-grandmother Mary Partridge (1792-1855) who married Cornelius Feather (1777-1853) in about 1804, probably in Ashtabula County, Ohio.
