Title: Marriage Certificate Booklet Henry J. Burnett Elizabeth Anderson Akron, Ohio 1913
Seller ID: 0155
Charming marriage certificate booklet printed in 1900 and used in 1913 and then given to the couple as a memento from the church in which they were married -- Trinity Lutheran of Akron, Ohio. Tied with a cord and filled with pretty period flowers and flourishes, poems, and religious admonitions. It's thirteen pages of turn-of-the century charm -- and large too at 6"x7-1/2" The clear, easy to read handwriting declares that it certifies that Henry J. Burnett and Miss Elizabeth K. Anderson were united in Holy Matrimony on the third day of December, 1913 at the minister's residence. It's signed only by E.W. Simon, Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Akron, Ohio. The booklet shows mild soiling to back cover and creasing to last page and back cover at same lower corner, as well as a small tear to outer back edge of cover. Pages are lovely. A pretty piece of the past.
