Who Could Perform Marriages in
Tippecanoe County Indiana
|This is a database of religious leaders and civil
authorities who could perform marriages in Tippecanoe County during the
first hundred years. It is arranged alphabetically by surname and
includes the Officiates name, position title, religious affiliation,
township name and the dates served in that position.
Marriage records document people in a geographical place, at a specific time, and generally include the name of the person who officiated at the ceremony. Identifying someone's religious institution, or location within the county, may lead to vital records or information that predate and supplement those kept by the county government. For additional information about Tippecanoe County churches and "genealogy," see TIPCOA'S Early Church Database.

It began with an index card file at the Alameda McCullough Research Library of the Tippecanoe County Historical Association (TCHA) and was supplemented by sources such as:
