Query: Ever Heard of This County?

                 I have been researching a family and one of the obituaries says that a gentleman and his first wife were married in "Metholene County, Indiana."  I can't find a current county by that name.  Was there ever one by that name, and if so where was it?
                Thank you!

UPDATE FROM IGS: Sue has now located the people - they were actually in Bartholomew County, Indiana.

  1. This must have gone through several stages of confusion, maybe both in writing and orally. I'm wondering if it could be a distortion of Bartholomew?
