11/29/1876 Homer Index Homer Michigan
D- John Romney, Esq., on 15th inst., in San Luis Valley, Col. of Chicago, age 37y,10m,8d. He was son-in-law of JN Westcott of Homer

Homer Index 8/2/1876 Homer Michigan
"M- in Denver, Col., on 7th inst, by Rev. AT Woodruff – John Romney, Esq., formerly of Chicago & Caroline Westcott, dau. of Hon. JN Westcott of Homer."
NOTE: Why announcement before wedding? or married in July?

She was a correspondent for The Chicago Times before her marriage to John Romney, 23 Aug 1876, & returned to The Times when he died 3 months later.

Message board: The thought has been, for some time, that she made up the story in order to travel more freely. But she posted the announcements only in her home town paper in Michigan - not in Chicago where she and John supposedly were from. Having him die in the San Luis Valley is also odd.


do you think she made up the marriage in order to be free to travel as a widow which she might find difficult as a single woman?
