This marriage certificate is NOT in the possession of any research facility or group in Lenawee County. Lenawee Bibles was contacted by Mike Finley, who kindly offered to share an image and some knowledge about it. Mike has more information on this family and ALL questions about the marriage record, the family, the information shared here should be directed to him.
