curious sidenote: in 1868, about 7 years prior to Sylvanus & Clara's marriage, a (Sylvanus Newcomer) married Emily Fleck 9 Aug, 1868 in Seneca, Ohio.... no idea if this was the same Sylvanus or even a relative... this couple had twins "Jane Anabell Newcomer" & "Jesse Arabell Newcomer" born 6 Feb 1869 Big Spring, Seneca, OH. I cannot find either Sylvanus in a 1870 Census.
