I would like to find out if there are any marriage application records for Henry County in 1855. I am told the marriage license itself would not have a lot of information, although I would like to have a copy of it as well if it is available.
Is there an index where I could confirm that the license or application or both are actually available?
I am looking for confirmation of the marriage of Rachel Cadwallader and William Conaway, 28 Oct 1855, but have seen nothing on the Henry Co., website.
Lydia Ann Reed married Rev. James Alvin Shepherd (James Alvin was the son of John C. & Rebecca Shepherd nee Fees) whose daughter was Rebecca Ella Shepherd who married Henry Stewart Jaquiss. We believe that Lydia Ann Reed's parents were John & Eliza Reed and that Lydia had a sister, Mahalia. This information is in regard to Mahalia.
Note: Myron married Eva Pero! Margaret married W.O. Pero! We had Wm. Shepherd married to Minnie Paro. Wonder if we spelled it correctly or if there is a possibility that this is one family in New London, IA. Can't find either Paro or Pero in the 1850 census for Henry Co, IA. So who knows?
The information supplied could match the census information included below since it is quite possible that Lovinia E. is Eliza and the census might have been taken before William was born.
The person who left this message at Genealogy.com Genforum didn't leave an e-mail address so the only possible way to contact him is if he would answer a reply posting.

In the 1880 census they were living in Canaan Township, Henry County, Iowa.
Their children included:
Lillian, John, Sarah, Lulu May, Cora, Jerome, Jennie, David.
Did Hezekiah and Elzora died in Henry County?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help, but no matches. My Earl Whipple (Anderson) married Mary
Bourne. I was told that his mother was Martha Ann Archibald, so the Anderson must
have been a previous marriage. The Whites must have been from someone else,
because I don't have Whites in my line.
Could you look up any info on the HEDDENfamily(ies). Believe they lived in
Henry; County in the 1870-1900s.
