Marriage: Eli W. Haley to Cora B. Metzner
From my visit to the Jay County Clerk's office, I was able to obtain this marriage record of my maternal great-grandparents, Eli Weldon HALEY and Cora Belle METZNER. Their marriage occurred July 21, 1888.
Eli was born March 24, 1866 in Erie County, Ohio, the son of George Washington and Mary Jane (SHERRICK) HALEY. Cora was born August 21, 1868 in Jay County, Indiana, the daughter of John Adam and Clara (MOULTON) METZNER.
Together they had seven children, only five of whom survived into adulthood. They resided in Noble Township and were members of the Mt. Zion church.
Eli died June 14, 1957 in Jay County, Indiana and Cora died April 28, 1955. Both are buried at the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Jay County.
