Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Here's a little FYI. If you ever get a chance to get to the Owen County Courthouse to search for marriage records, take it.
Tucked inside the record books you might find the original hand written notes/letters of permission from the parents or guardians! Of course, not all have them but a surprising number do.
For my husband's family, I found several and was able to make copies. Sigh...it was pure heaven!!
It is well worth the trip and I found the staff very helpful and friendly.
BTW, I am looking for Hawkins, Stivers, Cull, Leake, Lusby, Miles, Miller, Beach and many others. My husband's family came to Owen County early on and they all stayed put, quite unlike my rambling family!!

Does anyone know how I might go about finding a marriage record for Owen
County, from 1846? I have found out, according to his Civil War Pension file,
that my g-g-grandparents, Erasmus Burns Collins, and Frances Jane Thomas,
were married in Owen County, 23 Dec 1846. Finding this marriage record could
very likely open many doors in finding more about my family. Any help would
be greatly appreciated
