Subject: marriage docs for William T. Allen to Elizabeth Wilkin

Classification: Query

I have unsubstantiated information that my great-grandfather William T. Allen (b. Crawford County, PA in 1837) married Elizabeth Wilkin (b. in England in 1839) in Jo Daviess County on May 20, 1863. I simply can not find the sources to prove this fact.
I don't think William was in the area for long. If he did marry there then documents about the enlistment of a William Allen (married, living in Waddams, in 1863) might help me with further military information.
