Margaret Burrage wedding portrait, 1859


Margaret Burrage & Benjamin Johnson Lang wedding portrait, ca. 1859

If this is the Benjamin Johnson Lang the organist, he married Frances Morse Burrage (1839–1934) in 1861. And here is a grave of a Frances Morse Burrage Lang. And this could be their daughter hereMargaret Ruthven Lang.

So it might be that they got the names of the mother and daughter mixed up? And maybe the date of the wedding is not 1859, but 1861?
