The Richard-Phillips Wedding

While this particular UFO is newer than most we have covered in the past, it does bear some importance; primarily that it is in such good shape and the wealth of historical information that it contains. With that in mind, the UFO Team was pleased to find this mini-treasure in Area 51.

Larger than normal piece of light-weight paper. Contains a small line in the bottom left from the printing company.

Unique Marks:
Bottom Left - "607 - Marriage License - K-B Printing Company - Omaha"

Reverse, Bottom Right* - "607 - Marriage License - K-B Printing Company - Omaha"

* The reverse of this document is designed to be folded into quarters. This would make the bottom right turn into the Front with the printing at the bottom left.


Claud and Bertha were both from the central Nebraska area. The met while Claud was working on the Carver Ranch in the Valentine area of Cherry County. They would go on to marry and have four sons. While they would eventually divorce, they stayed in the same general area of central Nebraska. Bertha would remarry and divorce again while Claud would remarry twice and become a widower twice before passing away.


- Numerous facts were gathered from the private Richard Family Estate collection. These facts span numerous sources of information and contain genealogical data, photos, and newspaper articles.
