The form indicates that the marriage was by B - banns. This would indicate that it was probably a church wedding.

Arsinoe Coleman was Asenath's sister. Her name is misspelled on different documents, or ill written, as if the clerk entering her name was unsure as to what he was looking at. Her name as spelled on the above registration isn't entirely clear, however it's plain enough who she was.

Though Asenath died in Seattle, her estate was probated in Wentworth County by a James Gray, apparently with the law firm of Lawrason and Robinson of the Town of Dundas. The will itself photocopied poorly for the microfilm. Her daughter, Asenath McNulty, is appointed executrix, but after that the reading is difficult. The will seems to be dated 1917 and at the time Asenath McNulty was in Nobleford, Alberta. Apparently Asenath at the time of her death was still in possession of the south half of the south half of lot 35 on concession 9 of the Township of Beverly. This seems to have been sold. Son William is mentioned in her estate, but, mainly it went to her daughter Asenath McNulty. Son James is not mentioned and no evidence has been found as to whether he was still living.
