Re: Ohioi Black Codes-FPOC Related

Jane ( I hope I am allowed to call you by your first name?), You posted, " you might want to check on a subscription service for "Ohio Marriages," to double check your [the] 1835 marriage." I am trying to figure out with whom I should take a subscription? I have visited the Western Reserve Historical Library and Museum's, the Ohio Historical Society's and the Ohio Genealogical Society's web sites several times looking to read about a subscription for marriages in that state and I have yet to find a specific place on those sites where to take a subscription. Do you mean something like or the another site? I would like to have a copy if one is available? What I can gather from the records I have seen so far it was a "Justice of the Peace" marriage.

I also took time to visit the LDS web site to look again (I took my person to Salt Lake City a year or so ago) to see if I could find mention of Michael and Verlinda's marriage and they have the it:

Source: M513103 Dates: 1835-1844 Source: 0317292V4.5 Film

Again, a year or so ago, I took my person to Salt Lake City and found this roll of film, sat down at the viewing machine and found Michael and "Malinda PAIN" 20 May 1835. This is way they have Verlinda Payne spelled on a few documents. In fact, the have her as Belinda in one Census. So I am 98% sure this is the record that I am looking to put my hands on.

I believe the Godfrey Library may have a book (or so its web site says so) called: "Belmont County, Ohio Marriages" published in Parkersburg, West Virginia by W. Cochran [199?]. The descriptions says it is marriage records with the contents from 1803-1849. I believe the call number is F34XB451B46.
