  • Notes  Married:
    • Lycurgus and Flora were married in Clarks Mills by Thomas B. Dooley, who was the pastor at St. James Episcopal Church in Manitowoc. Dooley did not register the marriage until 5 March 1869, 17 months after the event. By that time he did not remember Lycurgus' and Flora's first names. He also gave the bride's mother's name as Mary (a sister) rather than Hannah. He did name the witness as Angeline Knapp, one of Flora's sisters. Angeline was married about a month after Flora, and Dooley also recorded her mother's name as Mary rather than Hannah.

      Dooley registered 17 other marriages the same day. The earliest was performed 13 Dec 1866, almost two years and four months before he registered it. He did not record the marriage date for one of them.

      Dooley came to Manitowoc from Michigan about 1865 and returned to Michigan in 1870. He is identified as F. B Dooley in "A History of Manitowoc County" by Ralph G. Plumb.
