Thank you for this information I will create an account. Yes my mom would have applied for the marriage license in Cuyahoga county as she lived in that county on Park Hill Ave.
Everything she talked about when she could speak she always mentioned Cuyahoga in the conversations.
We moved from Cleveland in 1945 to California.
This had been frustrating trying to find out any information I have even tried military records with no luck.
My mom did say his last name was Roads but not spelled like road.
Again thank you for the quick search.
I did find an article about my mom but not the marriage license.

Here is a link to the Probate Court of Cuyahoga County although it will not give you a copy of the Marriage Record it will provide you with the the spelling of your fathers last name: http://probate.cuyahogacounty.us/pa/TOS.aspx. I did a quick look but did not see your Mothers name. The marriage license may have been applied for in another county near by. If you go to the website http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcuyaho/
it lists the adjacent counties.

I don't live in Cleveland but I think it's very likely the marriage license could have been published in the local paper -- they used to do that in Kansas City when I was younger.
I'm assuming by your post that they never married? Have you tried contacting Cuyahoga County to see if they have any record of a license being issued to them?
I am trying to find my birth father he was from Cleveland and sometime around 1942 my mother and my birth father had their marriage license published in the Cleveland plain dealer. His name was Kenneth hroads (not sure of the spelling, maybe Rhoads). My Moms name is Helen KubancIk.
Do you know if this could be true about the marriage license being published?
My mom lost contact with him before I was born he was in the service.
Any help would be appreciated. Would like to know the correct spelling of his name. I would love to know if he is still alive or died in the war.

the article is on page 2 of the Plain Dealer. I hope I don't disappoint you but is very short.
I am trying to upload it to the group's album right now.
Let me know if you can see it. If not I can email it to you.
I live in Cuyahoga county and have access to the library's site. I have located the paper for that day. Let me look through it and see if i can find the article!

Thanks for the suggestions, but I live in Ohio. I was just trying to see if I could avoid paying for it, but if I have to I will.
If you live in Cuyahoga County, Ohio and have membership to the Cuyahoga County Public Library, through their website http://cuyahogalibrary.net/DBbySUBJECT.aspx#NEWS you can access the old Cleveland Plain Dealers with your Library Card and PIN. You may also be able to visit one of the Branches.
Julie - I did subscribe and then found they did not have what appeared to be articles about family members I was researching. I also subscribed to newspaper.com
with similar disappointing results. Ancestry.com
seems to be buying many of these papers and thus I am now just using their newspaper search focusing on papers in the towns/area of my family and I also google for obituaries which has worked.

Does anyone subsc ribe to this site? I believe they have an article I am looking for regarding my great great grandfather John Kohan who died in 1890. He was run over by a train severing both legs and there was an article about it in the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Sept. 24, 1890.
