I'm desperately trying to find the source information (and better copies) of marriage information from I believe are White County marriage records. Ancestry' Family Trees have poor copies of the certs but no source information. The first attached scan is possible the index page for White CO marriages; see listing for Rowan, Wallace and Betsey Madcalf. The other scan (or iphone pic) is of the actual marriages; this only shows the partial names of XXXRowan and XXX Madcalf. Copies of the 2 scans are attached or are available on Smith Family Tree (Shiptime) on Ancestry. Scans attached to Wallace Rowan.
The Illinois Statewide Marriage Index 1763-1900; lists the following information.(extracted from http://genealogytrails.com/ill/white/groomsm-r.html
Groom Bride DATE VOL/PAGE
ROWEN, (ILLEGIBLE) MEDCALF, (ILLEGIBLE) 03/00/1818 001/
The DAR is wanting DOCUMENTED proof of the marriage of Wallace Rowan (also spelled Rowin) and Elizabeth (Betsey) Metcalf (Madcalf).
FYI, Elizabeth (Betsy) Metcalf (1801-aft 1850) is the daughter of Emanuel Purser (1778-1866) and Sarah Purser (1777-1864).
Thanks so much for your attention and any possible help. Ken
