Query: Gardner/Heady of Sullivan County

I have found out that Simeon Gardner and Sarah A. Heady lived in Sullivan County, Indiana in the 1840 census and probably got married there, but I just found out the courthouse burned down on 17 February 1850 so where do I go from there? Simeon Gardner is the granddaddy of Charles Robert Gardner who came to Texas and founded our town, Vigo Park, in 1907. It was named for Vigo and Parke counties in Indiana, and most of the people who settled here were from those counties. Is there any way I can found out where Simeon Gardner came from in Kentucky?
