This record of the marriage of William Broderick and Cynthia Haley was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.
I do not yet know how Cynthia fits into my Haley family in Jay County. Obviously, she married into the family. Initial searches on databases looking for a marriage of a Hern to Haley were unsuccessful.
I find it interesting that the license and return was taken out in Jay County, the groom lived in Adams County and the bride lived in Blackford County.
The name of the Clerk of the Jay Circuit court was terribly hard to read. I was able to search Google and locate a record of John Alfred McDowell Adair in order to interpret his signature.
