If you have access to Connecticut marriage records, could you check for records of any of these marriages?

Charles F. Johnson b. 16 January ~1843 Connecticut d. 28 February 1913

m. Harriet Thompson (divorced ~1868)

m. Phebe Ann "Annie" Bryan in April 1892 (date given in military records anyway, but no record provided to confirm)

m. Georgianna (appears as his wife and next of kin in military records of his death in 1913 so presumably before 1913 and after 1892)

I'm especially interested in whether or not Charles F. Johnson listed the name of his parents in any of these records, but additional details of the women also greatly appreciated. If you can include citations and, if possible, images, that would be amazing! Thank you so much!

I'm not 100% sure Georgianna wasn't a mistranscription of Phebe Ann but don't have access to the record it was transcribed from. Alas!

Not odd. He was in the National Soldiers Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers in Virginia towards the end of his life. Check out the Residences section of his WikiTree profile.

Unfortunately, I already have all of the military information on his spouses, including this file. Hoping for the actual marriage records in Connecticut to help clarify who his parents were, or the parents of any of his spouses. Thank you, though!

The online vital records for Connecticut (Barbour Collection) only go to 1850. Charles wasn't married until after 1850. So you won't find it online or in any of the printed connecticut record books. You will need to contact the town clerk for the town where the marriage took place.

Thanks, Anne! We have a few publications of New Haven County marriages in the genealogy section of our public library so, with fingers crossed, that'll be my next stop. And if that fails ... on to town clerks and the hopes that taxes pay for the requests. Researching 1,200+ soldiers and their families means I definitely can't afford the fees sometimes charged for this kind of information. Always grateful when someone is willing to donate the research and enormously grateful to all of the digital archivists making more and more of this information freely available to the public through library funds, etc.! :)
