Early Indiana Marriages

Sometimes people went to Indiana to get married - not sure why. But Indiana has a web site showing marriages up to 1850 and you can search by surname.  I searched the Leach surname and found several hits for my Ohio County ancestors, as shown below. So just search your various surnames for anyone old enough to be married before 1850 and you'll probably get a few hits.  Good luck.


INDIANA MARRIAGES thru 1850


The Index to Indiana Marriages Through 1850 began many years ago through a project initiated by Dorothy Riker the late former Editor of The Hoosier Genealogist, which listed the name of the groom in county listings in this publication.  Later, brides names were added to the original card set of groom names in the Genealogy Division. Volunteers expanded the card set to include all dates through 1850 for counties where marriage records existed. This became a database which contains approximately 330,000 records totaling 90.5 MB of electronic data.  In addition to the marriage listings which index the county courthouse records, the database includes marriages which were noted from the early Quaker monthly meetings in Indiana. These Quaker marriages were listed in the Abstracts of the Records of the Society of Friends in Indiana compiled by Willard Heiss, (Call Number Geneal. 929.102 F911h v. 7).  In addition the database includes listings for the St. Francis Xavier parish church in Vincennes, Indiana which date from 1749.
