 :) Makes you wonder at what age Jane married her first husband at?
Is this shown on his record?

Apparently the military paid an allowance until a girl reached 14 - I think it is possible that she married a David McCoy in 1825 sometime and he died in June of that year.  He was also in the 46th.  She then must have married Charles who was probably a friend of David's.  There is no record of this marriage though which is odd.  Also the second marriage says with banns but can't find any banns in India section of Ancestry or FYP or FS.
