My grandmother still holds the original marriage record for her parents, Charles Francis Dempsey (1894-1986) and Josephine Amelia Gamble (1894-1976). I had the opportunity to digitize this document a few weeks ago at Christmas time. It blows my mind that there are original documents in our family that are almost 100 years old!
I, T.W. Rosensteel hereby certify that on the 11th day of Feb one thousand nine hundred and 20 at St. Joseph’s Charles F. Dempsey and Josephine A. Gamble were by me United in Marriage.
in accordance with license issued by the Clerk of the Orphans Court of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
