This site may help you in your journey. I have been able to use it to find out information about some of my family in Ohio, regarding death notices with dates and marriage notices.

Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center



An index to 2,100,000 obituaries, death & marriage notices & other sources from Ohio from the 1810s to the present day. Actual obits may be ordered from 50 partner libraries; only Hayes Library has online ordering.

That's great. I didn't know of this source.

Don't expect to find them. Ohio didn't mandate state records of birth, death and marriage be kept until 1868. Some counties kept them, but not the state....Boo Hoo.
