    Married:
    • Bill Boyer notes: "Mary was in her 60's when she married George."

      JSHJr notes: Their marriage application completed by George W. Boyer says she was 47 yrs old. Interesting that he didn't fill in her birday.  GWB birthday is 21 Feb 1850 which contracticts other records saying 21 Feb 1848. [7]
