At Last!

I looked high and low for the marriage of  Samuel Drew and Jane Harris, and was starting to think that they never bothered. The passenger list on the "North American" in April 1867 had her as Jane Drew, spinster, after all. However, if you wait long enough, things will pop out of the woodwork. Ancestry.com now offers Maine marriages, and there they were! Married by a Justice of the Peace on 26th June 1867 in Cumberland County, Maine. Many thanks to Lorna (Devonshire relly) who has a more comprehensive subscription to ancestry for winkling out the details.

Another mystery crossed off the list.
