  1. I have William and Josephine's original December 16, 1872 marriage certificate here in Portland, Oregon. I am not related. My aunt married Robert Purdy in Rochester, NH and they moved to Portland, OR. His mother was a Berry so they may have been his great grandparents. It is readable and entirely there but it accidently tore when I tried to remove it from the frame so I put it back in the frame. My e-mail address is karen_trojano@hotmail.com. I want descendants to have it.

  2. I have the original marriage certificate of William Henry Wilkinson and Josephine Chase Wilkinson dated December 16, 1872. I want to hand it to interested heirs. It's framed, every word is readable, and the artwork is beautiful. However when I tried to remove it from the frame it curled and ripped so I put it right back. It needs to remain flattened in the frame. Contact me at karen_trojano@hotmail.com.
