1726 Gergely Édes and Catharine Galambos

In 1762, a week before Valentine’s day, fifth great-grandfather Gregory Édes (Gregorius/Gergely) was married for a second time at age 63. His bride was an educated single woman, Catherine Galambos. The marriage register describes Gregory as a widowed grandfather. They were both from Madár. The two witnesses were noble earls or counts.

One thought on “Romance never dies!

  1. What a beautiful topic to blog. Romantic is definitely a word I use to describe Hungarians, our language is full of delicious words of passion & romance & it seems our fifth great-grandfather played out his passion at the mature age of 63.
