The Marriage of Robert Shane and Bridget Hogan

One of the documents I recently obtained is the marriage certificate of Robert Sheen (Shane) and Bridget Hogan who were married September 3rd, 1858 in Jones County, Iowa.

The certificate is a little tough to read but has the number “93” in the upper right corner and “655” on the left side.   This indicates it’s license #655 on page 98 of the marriage register.  The text of the document asks for the “Names of Parties” which would be Robert and Bridget, “When Married” September 3th (sic), 1858, and “By Whome Married,” James Slattery, R.C. Priest.

So that’s about it for the marriage record.  Even though the information is sparse it’s an exciting record to obtain!

    I see we have yet another derivation of the family name, Sheen. This all kind of supports my thinking that the name was originally pronounced ‘Shay-un’.
