- Marriage record, Huron, Ontario, Canada
Groom Alvin Schwartz, 26 years old, resident of Buffalo, N.Y., born in Berlin, bachelor, occupation printer. His parents John and Catharine Schwartz. Bride Annie Wild, 25 years old, resident of Bayfield, born in Bayfield, spinster. Her parents Casimier and Cath Wild. Wedding occurred 1 Jul 1889 at the bride's parents' residence. Both the bride and the groom are Roman Catholic.
ed. note: Annie Wild disappears from the public records after this marriage record. When her father Casimir Wild died in 1904, his will specified a $300 legacy for "my grand daughter Ursula Swarts daughter of Alwin Swarts of the City of Buffalo in the State of New York". Ursula Schwartz was born in Buffalo in June 1890, 11 months after Annie's and Alvin's wedding. In 1894, her father Albin Schwartz married a woman named Caroline. It is likely that Annie either died in childbirth or while her daughter Ursula was very young. Note that Ursula Schwartz's father's name appears as either Albin or Alvin in various public records.
