This record of the marriage of Andrew Franklin Haley (1864-1937) and Emma Catherine Leonhard (1866-1925) was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.

Andrew was my paternal great-granduncle, son of George Washington and Mary Jane (Sherrick) Haley.  The return show's Emma's father as "J.T. Leonhard", but I have it as John Philip Leonhard in my database.

The Haleys were members of the Evangelical Association church, but I'm not aware of any other connections with the minister, George Wolf.
