I was looking for a death record for Herbert Loyal Edminster the other day, and instead came across this marriage license. It’s the license allowing him to marry Laura Stone, his second wife September 25, 1893 and was issued in MIssouri.
In case you can’t read it clearly, the document (#8888) states that Herbert L. Edminster of the County of Leavenworth, State of Kansas and Laura Stone of the County of Leavenworth, State of Kansas both are over the age of 21 years. Their marriage was performed by Henry Hopkins, Pastor of the 1st Congregational Church, John W. Hinde was the Recorder, John A. McCoy the Deputy Recorder.
