Query: PORSCH / VETTER / NEAD / FALLIS of Ripley County

Edward PORSCH was my great grandfather he was born on 4 Oct 1870, in Germany. He came to the USA, and was living in Osgood, Ripley County, IN. He died on 8 Aug 1947 in Ripley County IN. Edward was born in Lantem East Prussia and came to America with his brothers and had a farm in Ripley County

My great grandmother Bertha VETTER PORSCH was born 28 Oct 1880 in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. She passed away at Manderly Nursing Home in Osgood, IN on the 18 June 1975 Osgood, Ripley, IN.

They are both buried at St. Johns Cemetery in Osgood, along with my grandmother Mary Johanna PORSCH NEAD born 2 Jan 1907,Osgood, Ripley, IN she passed away on the 7July 1984, Osgood, Ripley, IN, Mary Jo grew up in Osgood, IN a very devoted member of St. Johns Catholic Church. She was married to Stanly Hubert NEAD and they had 2 children Peggy NEAD FALLIS, also buired at St. Johns in Osgood and Dennis Edward NEAD buried in Fort Myers, Florida.

I am trying to find out information regarding my grandmothers birth certificate. I am not sure but think Edward and Bertha may have been married in Osgood. They did have another child before my grandmother that passed away after birth. I believe they where Jewish and changed to Catholic when they came to Osgood. Are there any records for Ripley County for the 1890 to 1940 time period?
