The following two marriage documents were sent by a cousin, who believes the John G. Wilmot, John G. Wilmott, in the separate documents are the same person.

DOCUMENT 1 - John and Phoebe

It is known that the couple in Document 1 is "our" John and Phoebe, parents of: John G. jr, Edna May, Chester, Samuel, Leonard S, Florence C, George E, Percival, and Daniel.

John in Document 1, being 24 at the time of his marriage, would have been born about 1845.
John Gilbert Wilmot (Sr.) b. abt 1825.

We thought they were married in Darien, but the certificate says Greenwich CT
Phoebe Jane Sammis b. Apr 23, 1832 Norwalk CT, d. July 31, 1893 in NYC.

Problem: John's parents in document 1 are James and Feby

Actual items from Document 1
Marriage John G Wilmott and Phebe J Sammis
John: Age 24, Fireman Born Greenwich CT
Father James Wilmott, Mother Feby Wilmott (nee ??)
Phebe: Age 17, Born Norwalk CT
Father Leonard Sammis, Mother Julia A Judson
Married in New York, April 22, 1869
(John signed as Willmot)

DOCUMENT 2 - John & Phebe

The John G Wilmont in Document 2, being 60 at the time of his marriage, would have been born about 1842. Birthplace is the same as John of Document 1.
Spelling of surname is different... fault of clerk?

Problem: John's parents in document 2 are Henry and Julia Jackson

Actual items from Document 2
