This record of the marriage of Charles E. Bickel and Nora F. Chew was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.
I do not yet know for sure how Nora ties into my Chew family. I believe that she might be the Nora who was the daughter of Charles Alexander West Chew and Rebecca F. Shumaker, but without the return I do not have any other evidence. My Nora was born August 1882, so would be right around 20 years old if they are the same person.
