If you know siblings who lived in the same area then check where they were married also if you know folks off deeds and such other documents look to see where they were married. Also if you know of a minister in the family or church the family might have attended then check in that area. Since you don't know the parents then these are the other possible sites to look as have found that folks tended to go to a more populated area to get married when they had little or no family in the same area as them.
Hey, wayne. Did you see my follow-up post (titled, descriptively
AARRGGHH!!))? I didn't have any of the information that you suggest
above; it was sheer blind dumb luck that I found an on-line record of
the marriage in Chariton County, where I suspected Mary might have
relations since that's where she and her husband moved after all his
family had died in Indiana. Now I'll have to see if I can find another
source or two to sort of nail it down. I need to find out if Chariton
County was keeping any paper records of marriages that far back.
Otherwise--hm--I suppose I could check Jacob's obit to see what church
he went to, although it was the obit that told me they were married in
St. Louis, darn it.
Thanks for the suggestions. :)
