I have Macoupin ancestors who married in St. Charles, though it was 1901. The newspaper announcement says 'they married several months ago and kept their marriage secret', however they was only a month between the date on the marriage record and the date of the newspaper announcement. I also know it was relatively common for people in the area to cross the river to marry. I'm not really sure why.
