This record of the marriage of Wesley F. Metzner and Nora Axe was located at the Jay County Historical Society in Portland, Indiana.

Wesley was my paternal great granduncle, the son of John Adam Metzner and Clara Moulton.  Before locating this record, I had his wife's name as Elnora M. Axe.  These same names keep appearing in the closely knit families of Haley, Metzner, Axe, Kimble, etc.
