Previously, I had posted Timothy and Helen Corcoran's marriage license, but I didn't transcribe it or go into any depth. I feel I need to start transcribing the information.
I thought it was interesting that they were married at Pullman and wondered if Timothy Corcoran worked for Pullman at the time. The Pullman Company was a manufacturer of railroad cars and known for its' planned town. It is something I need to explore further.
Helen Smith was born Helen Schmitt and was 17 at the time of marriage, not 19. Otherwise, I believe the information on the license is correct.
