Wedding Wednesday - Percival & Goodridge
On this day, one hundred and ninety six years ago (May 22, 1817) in Boone county, Kentucky, Dr. John Stearns Percival, Sr. married his first wife, Matilda Fleet-Hinton Goodridge.
I don't know how old Matilda was when they married and I don't know where or how she died. Supposedly, they had two children, Elizabeth and Egbert. Family history is that Elizabeth never married and Egbert went to California and died there in 1870 at the age of 51. Egbert is mentioned as child of Matilda in his grandfather's (Goodridge) will. At any rate, John married again in 1822.
