Leander Lewis (1855-1929), Huntington County, Indiana

Working on filling in some gaps in my database by utilizing the "Indiana Marriages, 1811-1959" database at to see what updates and corrections I could find.

Leander Lewis (1855-1929) was the son of Solomon Lewis and Margaret Rinehart.  He married Emley M. Adams on November 18, 1877 in Huntington County, Indiana.  Searching this database allowed me to find a copy of their marriage license.
