      Identified as Mortimer Ireland, 24, b. Lewis Co, res. Ritchie Co, son of Thomas & Catharine; and Jerusha M. Patton, 19, b. Harrison Co, res. Barbour Co, dau of John & Sarah. Married Oct 11 1859 in Barbour County. (Note: Husband's obituary states marriage date as Nov 11 1859, but although the handwritten record is faint and subject to interpretation, it does not appear to be November. Rather than Lewis County, husband's birthplace is stated in his obituary as "the old Ireland homestead at the mouth of the Middle Fork of Hughes River in Ritchie County.")
