Back in 1878, Marancy Hughes of Tuscarora, Nevada, married a man named Samuel M. Pollard.
She soon discovered that Samuel was not a man, but woman. Named Sarah.
I don’t know anything else about the situation, but I was amused by what an anonymous reporter in Baltimore had to say about Marancy’s name:
To begin with, her Christian name is Marancy, which of itself is an overwhelming affliction.
Do you agree or disagree?
