Marriage Record : Marie Chew to Glenn Overholt, 1934, Huntington County, Indiana

"Indiana Marriages, 1811-2007", database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 4 September 2015), Edes Plafair Chew in entry for Glenn Overholt and Marie Chew, 1934.
While working through my RootsMagic database for people with missing information, I located the marriage record of Marie Chew, daughter of Edis Playfair and Bertha (Caupp) Chew, who was my paternal first cousin 3 times removed.  Marie married Glenn Overholt in Huntington County, Indiana.

According to their license, they applied for a marriage license and were married on the same day, Valentine's Day, February 14, 1934 in Huntington County, Indiana.  Glenn's parents were Milward and Mary (Rupley) Overholt, who both lived in Huntington County.  Glenn had been born June 21, 1914 in Wabash County, Indiana.  Marie's mother, Bertha, was still living in Huntington County, Indiana, but her father was deceased.  Marie was born September 12, 1913 in Darke County, Ohio.

Prior to finding this record, I did not know that Bertha's maiden name was Caupp, or that she and Edis had any children.  There may yet be more children to discover.  

If you have any additional information or are related to this family in any way, I would love to hear from you.

I was just thinking to myself when I opened your blogpost that I don't know why I read your blog, except that your ancestors and my husband's ancestors were in some of the same places at the same time.

Then I opened this post, and Glenn and Marie are my husband's step-grandparents. I was thrilled to read what you've learned about them. They were dearly loved and are greatly missed. Thank you for bringing a smile to my lips and tears to my eyes.

Hi Janice,

Would love to hear more about them, until this find I didn't even know they existed. Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

It really is a small world and interesting to find out how we are inter-connected.
