    McGillin, William | McCoy, Catherine - Marriage
    The top image shows the crossed out entry in the Register of Marriages for Assumption BVM Church, Philadelphia, for the marriage of William McGillin and Catherine McCoy on 5 April 1865, the date that is also given in Philadelphia City Records. The bottom image shows the marriage being shoehorned in between two entries in April 1864, so as to make it seem that the marriage was celebrated on 5 April 1864. However, the record is clearly contemporary to 1865, as there is no sequence number to the 1864 record, but there is for the 1865 record.
