Oh my god, the hilarity!

So I’m looking through marriage records of Washington County, VA trying to prove yet once more Ann Sharp Laughlin….and I come across this:

Koontz, Dorathy   60

(Note: Vulgarity is irresistable to certain types of mind. In variantions of this name, look where no gentleman should ever look, but many do. All respectable married women know what I mean. A divorce was recently granted a very nice woman on the basis that her husband was too sissy to avail himself of this free and delightful oppurtunity.)

If anyone else wants to see this for yourselves: Washington County Marriage register 1782-1820, p 92. You can find it in the Card Catalog of Ancestry.com.

  1. Yes that is quite a note – also given that on p18 there is a certain George with that questionable last name.
