John BEERE and Florence BANKS
« on: Monday 27 January 20 22:31 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I'm looking for any leads or other information concerning John BEERE and Florence Elizabeth Smallcombe BANKS who married in Manhattan, NY on June 1 1887.

I know a bit about Florence, including her birth and who she came to the US from England with, but can't find any information after she married or about her husband. ???

Any help gratefully received.

There's now a transcription available of their marriage record, which gives a bit more detail - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:243W-KFS?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=9ZMF-V93

There is a John D Beere, secretary, living at 104 West 103rd Street in the 1889 NYC City Directory.

He is not found in 1888, or 1891 to 1893, where I stopped looking. There was no 1890 Directory on the site I looked at.

Thanks very much for these responses. Some progress made. I had forgotten about my enquiry on this forum from 2010 and now am annoyed that I didn't save the NYT article about the engagement 'trouble' because the link now seems to be inaccessible

I suspect the article covered the same ground as this one, which had her suing another guy for breach of promise of marriage:  http://www.rootschat.com/links/01oye/
