30th May 1865
Intro, Biographical Information, Notes etc:
Khatoon Constantine (widow of Yoosoof Constantine, of Bushira), 2nd daughter of Ovauness Moscow, of Shiraz.
The circumstances were enormously challenging amongst a hostile Muslim population, but some progress had been made with nominal Christians, and an Armenian widow named Khatoon, the mother of two children, professed faith in the Lord and joined the mission. She became Parnell's second wife on 21st May, 1833. The marriage of a British aristocrat to a middle-eastern woman was in those days most unusual, but Parnell felt it to be an answer to prayer.
