In Nov 2015 we could not find a marriage record for Bartlett Chauncey Shackford and Rose Winchester Karnan and wrote a blog about using a source from Bartlett’s College Directory to determine their marriage date. Last week through Randy Seaver’s Oct 2, 2017 post titled “Mining the “Massachusetts State Vital Records, 1841-1920″ Collection on FamilySearch” we discovered that this marriage record for Bartlett had been added to Family Search. From this source we see the names of their parents: Charles Chauncy and Flora A (Wood) Shackford and Robert W and Harriet (Winchester) Karnan. We also learn where Bartlett and Rose lived at the time of their marriage, learn that they were married at her house at 48 Birch St, Roslindale, Mass. We also discovered that she was working as a School teacher at the time of their marriage and that he was a physician. Here’s a copy of the marriage Record.
