<p class=MsoNormal>My newly &quot;found&quot; aunt has five (so far)
documentable marriage dates between 1856 and 1883. Each marriage took place in
either February or March, which seemed a little coincidental. Has anyone
noticed anything in the way of &quot;preferences&quot; or tendencies for the
time of a year for marriages during this time period? Or was it just that this
lady apparently preferred marrying during those months. These marriages took
place in Nebraska and Iowa. Aunt Emma has at least one other marriage, but I
just don't have a date. <o:p></o:p></p>
