Robert H. Williams1

ID#2192, b. circa 1873
Father: not yet identified
Mother: not yet identified

Birth date: circa 1873
Birth place: Nebraska.1

Robert and Pearl Hanen Harris obtained a marriage license on 27 November 1901 in Ohio County, West Virginia.1 As of that date, he was living at Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.1 The couple's marriage took place on 28 November 1901 at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. Samuel Haner certified that he united them in marriage. Although his surname appears to end with an "r" (handwritten differently from the "n" at the end of Pearl's name), I can't help but wonder if he might have been a Hanen also, possibly related to Pearl.1
