      Error: Place of Registry, State of New York (upper left corner)
      - has town/county reversed - should
      read: County of - Otsego, Town or City of - Milford
      .... Stephen Gilbert Sweet of Milford in the county of Otsego...
      and Helen Southworth Wright of Milford in the county of
      Otsego...the seal of said Town or City at Portlandville, 13th June 1924,
      E.B. Monroe, Portlandville, NY Town Clerk. [The body of the

      mation as given in #1 above, the Affadavit.]
      3] Marriage Certificate - [filled out and filed by the Clergy or
      Recorded, July 31, 1924, Otsego Co. Clerk's Office, No. 5840
      I, William E. Elwood, a Minister of the Gospel, residing at Main
      St., in the village of Unadilla in the
      county of Otsego....dohereby certify that I did on this 18 day
      of June 1924 at Unadilla, in the county
      of Otsego....solemnize the rites of matrimony between Stephen
      GilbertSweet of Milford in the county of Otsego....and
      Helen Southworth Wright of the presence of Reka de Bloom
      Harold Sweet as witness... [Harold was Stephen's brother. I do
      not know who the Minister was, ie., what denomination (poss.
      Methodist or Presbyterian) or if they married in a church or in the
      Minister's 'parlor'(likely), as the certificate is not that
      specific. I do not know who Reka de Bloomwas, but she must
      have been one of Grandma's friends whom she brought asher
      witness/bridesmaid. I wonder if she could be in any of those
      photos from Grandma's girlhood, or if it would be possible to
      track the de Bloom family down to see if they have any photos to
      compare.I also wonder if Grandma's parents approved of her
      marriage. - d. sweet]
