Events in My Family Tree: August 26

I have looked in lots of places for the marriage location of Ellis Thomas and Carol Morgan, but I didn't get anywhere.  My best guesses are New Jersey, Georgia, and South Carolina.


Phoebe Elizabeth Votaw, daughter of Daniel W. Votaw and Louisa Gaunt, was born August 26, 1885 in Wabash County, Indiana.  She is my 3rd cousin 3x removed via the Gaunts.

Mary Gaunt, daughter of Walter Clayton Gaunt and Lulu May Sherman, was born August 26, 1913 in Portland, Jay County, Indiana.  She is my 5th cousin once removed via the Gaunts.

Richard William Behr, son of Jack Behr and Sarah Clarice Higgins, was born August 26, 1949 in Butte County, California.  He is my 6th cousin on my Gauntt line through the Higginses.

Donna Caplan was born August 26, 1970.  She is my 3rd cousin.

Isadora Rennie was born August 26, 1992.  She is my 4th cousin.


Max Joseph Brainin, son of Morris Brainin and Rose Dorothy Jaffe, and Nellie Doctor were married August 26, 1908 in Manhattan, New York County, New York.  Max is my great-granduncle.

Francis John Gaynor, son of John Francis Gaynor and Wally Mary Ruppert, and Eileen Evelyn Mullaney were married August 26, 1944 in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey.  Francis is the half granduncle of my half-sister Laura Sellers.

Ellis Lester Thomas, son of Samuel Eli Thomas and Esther Jane Ellis, and Carol Annice Morgan were married August 26, 1961.  Ellis is my 2nd cousin on my Gauntt line through the Ellises.


John L. Claycomb, son of George F. Claycomb and Hannah Holmes Gaunt, died August 26, 1904 in Jay County, Indiana at the age of 42.  He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed via the Gaunts.
