When & Where did Zacheus and Harriet Get Married?

I have also been unable to locate a marriage record for Zacheus and Harriet. While Harriet appears on census records living with Zacheus, I have been unable to find any such records that would prove her maiden name. If anyone has any such documentation, I would be much appreciative if you would share.

According to "The Downers of America" book by David R. Downer (can be found on Google Books), Zacheus married Harriet M. Thatcher on 12 Feb 1823. The "History of the Brigham Family" by W.I Tyler Brigham (found on Archive.org) also lists Zacheus as being married to Harriet Thatcher, but does not provide a place or date.

When & Where did Zacheus Die?

One of the things I have been unable to prove through original records is when and where did Zacheus die? I have not been able to find a will, probate record, obituary, death record, or even a picture of his grave site on FindAGrave. If anyone has one, I would be much appreciative if you would share.

According to "The Downers of America" book by David R. Downer (can be found on Google Books), Zaccheus died in Sept 1876 in Sullivan, Indiana. The "History of the Brigham Family" by W.I Tyler Brigham (found on Archive.org) also lists Zaccheus as dying in Sept 1876 in Sullivan, Indiana. But like I said before, I have no original evidence to support this.
