I do hereby certify that the marriage of John Metzner and Catherine Young of said County was solemnized by me in due form of law on the 16" Nov. 1839

Augustus Grosskards


Located the image of the marriage record for my paternal 3rd-great grandparents, John Metzner and Catherine Young in Licking County, Ohio.  Previously, I had the date of their marriage as November 4, 1839 from county history and November 3, 1839 from John's obituary.  This record, however, clearly notes that the wedding occurred on November 16, 1839.

Tried to Google the pastor's name to see if I could find out more about him, but was unsuccessful.  It looks like Grosskards to me, but perhaps I'm reading it incorrectly.
