My great-grandfather, Seneca Page Wilkinson of Sweetsburg, Quebec,
married Elmira (Almira, Mira) Jacobs in Richford, Vermont in 1894.
As far as I know, they were both born in Quebec,
so it's a mystery to me why they married in Vermont.
I have been unsuccessful in finding her family in records.
On the marriage record, it lists her father as Joseph, and her mother as Mary.
Closest I have come to finding her is a census report,
from Brome-mississquoi in 1881 with a Joseph and Emily with a daughter Mira.
I am not convinced this is her family, although the dates all seem to add up.
Would love to tie up this Vermont mystery.
