Morris Keasling, Early Marriage Consents and Records in Harrison County, Indiana: January 1810 to December 1832, (Corydon, IN: Hoosier Elm Chapter NSDAR, 2011). Image of Susanna McCoy signed consent for marriage of daughter Mary Lewis. The author was contacted to obtain a copy of the original and this was their 2 July 2020 e-mail response: "About 6 years ago the Co Clerk's Archives were moved to a location again in the old original courthouse during a County wide records move. My DAR group helped in the sorting and stacking of things. I found a folder/box of old marriage consents that I was positive had not been at least copied. So another DAR sister and I sorted them, copied and put into book form. The folder/box (I don't quite remember what it was in) was then moved to the Clerk's archives kept locked. I checked my book copy and indeed there is the Mingles permission slip that I will copy for you. All we have is the xeroxed copy of the original permission. I searched diligently through the Clerk's boxes and did not find that collection. They did have a box of the earlier ones but this was not among them. Those had been put into book for[m] in probably the 1950's. The County Clerk even came down and we both looked everywhere for those loose slips that I had found some years ago. IF they are there--they are in another box but their files are very well organized. It IS possible that somehow they have been "removed/taken" or ? So I will send you a copy from my book of those "Unearthed" copies." 17.
