Albert Starkey and Mary Hartl were married in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota. Witnesses to their marriage were Henry Starkey and Mary Starkey. They were married by a Clergyman. They obtained their marriage license on 7 Jan 1889.

Things to note:

  1. Obviously the marriage information can now be considered “sourced”
  2. Albert Starkey has a brother named Henry Starkey and a sister named Mary Starkey, is this the witnesses?
  3. Mary Hartel is spelled Mary Hartl in this record. I will add that as an additional spelling.

.

Although I have found the census records for them as a couple, they will both appear on census records before they were married, this is what I will work on next. Finding each one previous to them being married.

Next To Do: Look for Albert in the 1885 Minnesota State Census.

1. Albert Starkey, 35, male, white, born in Wisconsin, lived in Minnesota for 26 years, Bell River for 6 years, farmer, employed 12 months, parents of foreign birth, not previously enumerated.
2. Mary Starkey, 26, female, white, born in Pennsylvania, parents of foreign birth, not previously enumerated.
3. Anna A. Starkey, 3, female, white, born in Minnesota, parents not of foreign birth, not previously enumerated.
4. Mary Lauretta Starkey, 1, female, white, born in Minnesota, parents not of foreign birth, not previously enumerated.

Everything seems to line up perfectly with the information that I currently have.

Next To Do: The information that I have states they were married in 1889, I will look for this marriage record.
