We rarely see the extra clues of a wife's maiden name printed on a card. This fancy card is most likely their marriage card, a beautiful piece, and most likely the only copy in existence. This beautiful piece was found in Deerfield, Franklin County, Massachusetts. It is most likely the only copy in existence.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
