I am searching for information on a Stephanes and Mary Clark who lived in Preble Co. between 1816 and 1825, perhaps as early as 1814.
I believe Stephenes was my g.g. grandfather and. first married Phebe Hole in Warren Co. in 1804. By 1814, he and Phebe were apparently no longer man and wife though I have not found a record of legal separation in Warren County. A record of a license application to marry was found. in Butler Co. but no legal separation or record of performance of marriage there either.
I believe this is the Stephenes Clark who owned land in Warren,, Butler and. Preble Counties, land which he sold between 1816 and 1832. In 1816 and 1825 he and Mary were residents of Preble County, in 1832 a resident of Fountain County, IN. I have not found them in the 1830 census.
I do not know what records are available for Preble County during the years of 1812- 1830, but a record of legal separation from Phebe, marriage to Mary?( possible Mary Coy), tax records or land. records for Preble County would be most useful.
I am willing to pay for any searching in Preble County and. will appreciate the names of those who might be willing to do this for me. Thank you.
