Since you did not use your first name I had to reply in this manner.
I need at least a decent time frame to look in. Since you did not give
any birth years or marriage years I can not do a lookup. The marriage indexes
alone comprise 10 different books that are unindexed except by initials and
cover 110 years of marriages.
I did look through the first index book which I have computerized and
did not find an applicable marriage record. I also looked through a book on
the Boomershine family which intermarries with a Martin Shoup. This
particular Martin Shoup had a daughter by the name of Maria but in 1850 she
was living in Elkhart county, Indiana as an unmarried daughter. I believe
that this Martin Shoup was a brother to the George Shoup for whom I am
looking for information on.
