Lord, Charles H., Kentucky Historical Society Register (1904, Kentucky), Vol. 2, No. 5, pg. 70f. Surety: 4. "Marriage License Older than State of Indiana is Found on Street".
A marriage license, older than the State of Indiana and still in good state
of preservation, was picked up in Jeffersonville, Indiana yesterday by County Recorder George W. Stoner, who happened to spy the ancient paper lying near the fence that surrounds the courthouse yard. How the document came to be where it was no one knows, but the supposition is that it was thrown out among a lot of wastepapers, the new janitor now being at work giving the building a thorough cleaning.
Besides being issued before Indiana was a State, the document was written
before there was such a thing as a marriage record in Clark County. The
paper bears the date of Nov. 15, 1813 and is signed by Isaac Shelby, County
Clerk and was issued to John Curry and Susana Daniels, a further
identification of the woman being given by stating in parenthesis that she
was a daughter of Peter Daniels.
The instrument is directed to any judge of the general court of quarterly
sessions, or other person employed to solemnize marriage in the county of
Clark Indiana Territory.
