    Family Daniel David Moriarty,   b. 2 Apr 1871, Kerry, Ireland Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 23 Feb 1932, Quincy, Norfolk Co., Massachucetts Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age 60 years)  [8

    • Marriage was witnessed by Patrick Moriarty (Daniel's brother) and Mary Shea (Ellen's sister?).

      The state record of the marriage dates it to 20 Apr 1897 while the church dates it 21 Apr 1897. Both record the record on 22 Apr 1897. I presume that 21 Apr is the marriage and 20 Apr is the license date.
