Church Record Sunday - Emmerson and Gilman in Washington D.C.

Once I was aware of the information contained in the little marriage book (see previous post), I then sent for the official Washington D.C. marriage record.

To any Minister of the Gospel authorized to Celebrate Marriages in the District of Columbia:
You are hereby LICENSED to solemnize the RITES OF MARRIAGE between
George B. Emmerson, of Washington D.C. AND Alice H. Gilman, of Richmond, Va. if you find no lawful impediment thereby; and having so done, you are commanded to appear in the Clerk’s Office of the Supreme Court of said District and certify the same.
Witness my hand and seal of said Court this 18 day of July, 1874
I, Jn. C. Smith, Minister of 4th Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C., hereby certify that, by authority of a License of the same tenor as the foregoing, I solemnized the marriage of the parties aforesaid on the 18th day of July, 1874, at parsonage Washington in the District of Columbia.
John C. Smith
