Cummings/Benedict Wedding

Wedding Annoucement (pdf file, click names to the right): Lucy Benedict and Albert Cummings

The announcement is in the 1st column about 1/3rd of the way down; zoom in to read it. The page headline is not dated, but other records report that their wedding date was in November 1853.

Also note that it references that they were married on the, “3d inst.”. Initial Google searching defines the abbreviation of “inst.” as meaning “in or of the same month”.

Incidentally, this pdf file came from a very handy website: which has millions of scanned newspaper pages from New York.
