So, we now know that my great great grand father, Henry M. Dames-among other Dames were married in Exuma Isl. Bahamas. They apparently moved to South Andros Isl. shortly thereafter and others remained or migrated to
other Isls.

We also know that his first wife's name was Frances Cooper. At his death, his wife was Bertha Elvira Dames.

It appears that on May 28, 1843: About

4(four) Dames marriages
took place in Exuma.

One involving a "Winsor" to Maryann Dames.
