I just put the pieces together and believe that this nun, Sister Mary Paul, who left the convent in Yankton for the dashing Russian doctor Vladimir Sebiakin Ross, may be my great-grandmother's sister. Sister Mary Paul's name before she entered the convent was Nellie Kearns, and she later lived with her husband and their children in Cherrydale, Virginia. Does anyone know any details of this notorious wedding in 1882, or have any idea where I could read details that might provide her hometown, for confirmation? Or. failing that, can anyone recommend a good genealogist in Yankton?
