Seeking clarification for marriage performed 13 August 1839 by Father Edward Gordon. Record indicates marriage performed at The Falls, Welland County. Not certain of the church. My research indicates 2 possibilities; Our Lady of Peace in Niagara Falls or St Vincent De Paul in Niagara on the Lake. Transcribed record is not clear, and research indicates that Father Gordon was active in both churches. There is no birth, age or residence indicated for the participants. Parents are listed, but no indication of whether or not they were present. There are 3 witnesses shown, but no ages, residence or relationship, if any, shown. These are my gggrandparents. They left the area about 1842-1844, after having 2 sons in Canada. They travelled down the river, and were in Louisville, KY by 1850. Thomas was a ship's carpenter/calker by profession. Any help to locate the original record, or additional information would be appreciated.
