Two Marriage Entries for James Rampley in 1830-Why?: Part I

A search of the “Ohio, County Marriages, 1789-2013” for James Rampley results in two matches. The entries contain the same information as shown in the image accompanying this post.james-rampley-two-marriages

But why are there two entries for James and Elizabeth in the database? The answer, as we will see in an upcoming post, is not all that complicated, but it makes for a good discussion on not just “grabbing” the image that comes up without doing a little bit of browsing of the images and some analysis.

Knowing where the image comes from is always a good idea.
