History of the Catholic Church in Indiana. (Logansport: Bowen, 1898).
According to their input on the 1850 census for Van Buren Township, they were married in Floyd, Indiana 2 Dec 1825.
From another contributer, Shirley Platt, Sophia was born in Kentucky, Butler Co., Ohio? From family documents, I was told Sophia passed in Van Buren Township which I am unable to find on the dropdown list, it didn't appear under Martin either.
