Married Twice to Each Other

Noah Wetmore Duryee was born about 1827 in New York and died February 4, 1866 in Morrisania, New York. He was buried in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn.

Noah's widow, Lucretia Daily, married Peter Romain in 1885 and 1890. I have not found an explanation.

Peter Romain's first wife, Rachel, died in 1881 and was buried in Woodland Cemetery in Newark.

Peter and Lucretia resided together in the 1885 New Jersey state census in East Orange with Peter's grandson, Alfred.

Peter and Lucretia's first marriage was March 4, 1885 in Newark, Essex County, New Jersey. Both lived at 27 Steuben Street in East Orange.

The second marriage was February 12, 1890, again in Newark, where they were living at 230 North Seventh Street.

Peter Romain died April 20, 1894 in Asbury Park, Monmouth County, New Jersey.

Lucretia died August 24, 1920 in Bronx. According to the index at, burial was in Newark. I will need to view the original certificate of death at a Family History Center to possibly discover which cemetery.
