Note #2 indicates that there is NO Web Merge for these three records. They will be manually entered and sourced.

Entering Rebecca Higgins into the Spouse of Hiram Deats and performing a Web Search would return no valid results, as the Last Name box in the Search field has Higgins in it. The Marriage Record (Figure 42) indicates the marriage in 1838, so in 1860, she would be a Deats.
