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

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?ReplyDelete
