A cursory search & review on www.familysearch.org revealed the following:
Elihu and Settie Mae Louvenia Clemens were married 24 Dec 1898 in Liberty Twp., Darke Co., Ohio. Elihu was the son of Harvey & Elizabeth (Wade) McCowan. Settie was the daughter of Alonzo & Louisa (Lawrence) Clemens. Elihu died 1 Oct 1936 & Settie died 7 Feb 1948.
Hope this helps & best wishes in your research.
An image of the marriage record and images of the death certificates for both may be found on the familysearch website.
