Mysterious Marie Becomes Less Mysterious

Awhile back, I wrote a Tombstone Tuesday post for Mysterious Marie, my great great grandfather’s second wife. At that point, I had not done truly any research on Marie. I really did not have much information to work with. Besides her former name was Goyette. That was all I really had, plus I was not too interested in her. There was no offspring to this marriage, Marie and John married later in life.

In the back on my head there has always been a little reminder that I needed to find more information on here. Thanks to FamilySearch, I was able to find the marriage register for John and Marie and it gives me a few more clues to look into.

Here is what I learned from this record. John and Marie were married 9 Apr 1915 in Hudson Falls, NY. Marie was 55 at this time and a widow. She was born in Canada to Joseph Denis (I think, it is hard to read) and Harriet Labounty. At the time of marriage, Marie lived in South Glens Falls, NY. Goyette was marries married name, I have no information on her first husband. Now that I have some clues, I will be following up on them in the future.
