Frances used numerous surnames throughout her life, including McINTYRE, McINTIRE, LEWIS, BLEEKMAN, SUTTON, SUTIN, and HILL.

John used the initials, J.R. and J.W. He also used his middle name, Richard.

So, even though the names are not their true names AND this date varies from the marriage date supplied for Frances's obituary, I feel fairly confident that this is indeed the marriage license for John Richard HILL and Frances McINTYRE LEWIS.
