Are you looking for 1940 census data - or death records?

"Indiana Marriages, 1811-2007," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 28 March 2016), Lawrence Leroy Mcclain and Ruth Isabelle Abernathy, 10 Dec 1932; citing Fulton, Indiana, United States, various county clerk offices, Indiana; FHL microfilm 1,871,214.


This record could be used as a source for her profile, her parent's, her husband, and his parents.  There is a wedding date, ages of bride and groom, some locations.


I found the 1940 census for Ruth McClain. I know she was born around 1914 in Indiana. On the census there was a copy of the marriage license. Can not find any more information than that. My dad was just a little boy when he moved in with his grandparents William and Mabel McClain. Thank you for your help
