Wedding Wednesday - Percival & Ewer

On this day, November14, 1816, Sylvanus or Silvanus Percival, son of Benjamin Percival and Lydia Goodspeed, and Celia or Selah Ewer, daughter of John Ewer & Hannah Robinson, were married by the Rev. Jonathan Burr in Sandwich, Massachusetts. Sylvanus is recorded as living in Hanover.

His father also recorded the marriage in his diary: "Thursday, 14 November, 1816, Silvanus married today."

  1. I always think of women being the ones to have diaries, so it is very cool that his father recorded the marriage in his.
