Am trying to find proof of the marriage between Austin Pye and Betsy (Elizabeth) Thatcher (various spellings) circa 1845. Also looking for birth proof for their son, Caleb Goodman Pye, born circa 1851 also in Downers Grove.
Both are too early for required recording. Are the church records still around anywhere? Have checked with both the local and state historical societies -- no joy ... but we are talking about records about nearly 200 years old.
Thank you for your help -
