St. Louis Marriage 1843

Here is another great image from a record. This marriage from 1843 comes from St. Louis, Missouri. Here again, Googling the name of the minister gave me more information about him, including information about him being involved in the founding of Washington University in St. Louis. Hopefully I can locate some records and determine whether it was the bride or the groom who were active members of the church. The groom here was Andrew Trask and the bride was Ellen Weld.

This image was made from the microfilm while I was at the Family History Library in Salt Lake last May. We will be posting more information when I can find it.
