Edwin Cline and Emeline Holdridge Marriage Certificate
"This is to Certify That Edwin Cline of Smithville, Chenango Co. in the State of New York and Emeline M. Holdridge of McDonough, Chenango Co. in the State of New York were by me joined together in Holy Matrimony on the Eighth day of March in the Year of our Lord One Thousand Eight Hundred and Seventy. J.C. Lawson"
Only a few letters of the surname Holdridge were readable. I was able to conclude her maiden name by relying on the 1870 Census, McDonough, Chenango County and searching for Emeline, females born 1849. She is located as an 11 year old child residing with parents, Ansel Chauncey Holdridge and his wife Roxy L. (maiden name unknown).
By 1880, Edwin and Emeline Cline had two sons, George E. Cline, Fred H. Cline and another undetermined child. The family was now residing in the next county to the east, Cortland County, New York.
All of the mentioned family members are laid to rest at the McGraw Cemetery, Cortland County, New York (see Find-a-grave).
