interesting marriage capers


Mundane or propane:

Victim: Miriam Creed 1814-1900
Circumstance: Marrying the Wrong Man. Miriam Martin married in Bristol to Elias Martin. Her granddaughter Ella stated that she "married the wrong man". I think this may be a reference to Elias's alcoholism, and not to a comic Twelfth Night scenario. The Moravian pastor wrote: "Had a good talk with Mrs Elias Martin today. She cannot sit and talk when her husband is at home. He is his own worst enemy, poor man." Their son Sidney was another alcoholic his son said that he used to throw gold sovereigns in the air to see people fight for them."
Origin of this story: Letter and email from Jimmy Martin, Roger Martin; the Moravian Church Archives.

Blew me away. Way to go.

I'd have had more exciting afternoons at the corn clinic. Get this snoozeworthy material off the site.
