This record of the marriage of Archibald E. Chew to Clara Inetta Martin was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.

Archibald was my paternal first cousin three times removed, the son of Charles Alexander West Chew and Rebecca F. Shumaker.  Before locating this record, I did not have any biographical data on Clara, and this is the last record researched so far for this couple.

Witnesses to the marriage were the fathers of the bride and groom.  Archibald's middle initial was incorrectly listed as "A" in the license.
