34 Years Of Marriage

Jerry Burgess and Mary Johnson were my three times great grandparents and according to the 1900 U.S. Census of Monroe County, AL. It was documented that they had been married for 34 years. Not all of the information on the U.S. Census is always 100 percent accurate due to some factors but if this estimate is about right that means they would have gotten married a year after the abolishment of slavery in the U.S. Now I just have to try and find that record!
