pg. 580 Nancy J. Chambers to Elder Wm. Bagley
I, John Chambers, a resident of Stillwater in said county being duly sworn on oath depose and say, that I am aged 65 years. That I am a brother of Mrs. Nancy J. Bagley, whose maiden name was Nancy J. Chambers, who now resides at No. 1007 Lafayette Street, Des Moines, Iowa, and who was married to Elder William Bagley at the residence of William Chambers, near Fairport, Muscatine Co., Iowa; on the 1sy day of January 1853, by Reverend Lemuel Wright, of Muscatine, Iowa.
That I was present at said marriage of Elder William Bagley to my sister, Nancy J. Chambers, and personally saw the ceremony of marriage performed by the Rev. Lemuel Wright, at the time and place before named. That since said marriage, the said Elder William Bagley and my sister, Nancy J. have lived as man and wife and children have been born to them and reared to manhood and womanhood and recently it has been discovered that the Clerk of the District Court made an error in issuing the marriage license to them, the error being William's name replaced with William Chambers being married to Nancy. I make this affidavit to aid in correcting said error, and the same should be so corrected on the court record of Muscatine Co., Iowa.
Signed, Anderson Chambers Aug. 6th 1895 Notary Public: H. D. Reeve of Polk Co., Iowa
