Biography: 

Nathaniel and Juana's multi-year search for a "white preacher" (as opposed to a "priest," presumably Hispanic as well as Catholic) to marry them suggests how scarce the Protestant preachers were in the novel's vision of the frontier (247). It's not said where the "preacher" who does marry them in Kansas is from, but on the "Saturday night" before the Sunday wedding he arrives at the Burden home from somewhere else (250).
