Thanks Gadget! You've solved the mystery! I tried using Joker characters (and her husband's name) in my searches but came up with nothing. Thanks to you, I've now got a potential date and place for the marriage of Jacques and Marie (from Geneanet) to track down and attempt to verify from the Parish Registers.

Another step closer .... You've certainly got an eye for this! I'm very grateful.

Pooling all the ideas and comments here, I think Debard might need to be considered, too.  :)

Edit: Sorry! Only saw the first page.  ;D Agree with Gadget.  8)
