The Marriage License of Herbert Wilson and Hilda Flowers

New Jersey State Archives; Trenton, New Jersey; Marriage Indexes; Index Type: Bride, Hilda Wilson; Year Range: 1930-1935; Surname Range: E – K; Reel Number: 31, page 55. 

A few weeks ago I came across the marriage license of Geraldine Wilson’s parents, Herbert Wilson and Hilda Flowers. I exhausted the Philadelphia archive, but apparently, I searched the wrong archive. I was in the wrong state. Although the couple held their wedding in Philadelphia and resided there, they crossed state lines for a license.

And now to ponder why.
