Description

Nail, a native of Mocksville, married Mertz in Louisville, Kentucky on August 16, 1883. After traveling for many years with the circus, Mertz reportedly asked Nail if she would like to become engaged and travel together. The clerk of court asked the couple if they were old enough to get married, due to their small size, when they applied for their marriage license. Their marriage occurred on stage at the Buckingham Theatre before a large number of spectators.
