Note: This document is especially interesting, as it certifies Edmond's (Edward's) marriage to Elizabeth Snyder as his only marriage, states the year and place of the wedding, and names the official who married them. Equally important, it reports the birth dates of five of their children, including my 2nd great-grandfather, Edwin S. Coon, father of my great-grandfather, Claude S. Coon.
