Marriage record lookup request for Find my Past

+4 votes
Hi everyone.  Big brick wall is my 3x great-grandfather who was (we believe) orphaned at a young age.  DNA proves that the surname he kept and we all use is the same as we match with other Baty/Beaty families.  I was working on another line of the family (his in-laws) and I found a reference to his marriage license.  I've only ever seen the index and I wondered if he might have listed some info about his parents on it.  I looked online and can't seem to find an actual photo of the source doc except at Find my Past.  If anyone has a subscription there and can pull this record, I'd appreciate it.

I'm looking for the middle record, the image:

WikiTree profile: Samuel Baty
asked in Genealogy Help by SJ Baty G2G6 Pilot (374k points)
This isn't from FindmyPast, but I did find a death record for his son, L.D. showing Samuel Baty as father and Rebecca George as mother. It says Samuel was born in Pennsylvania rather than Ohio. It also shows that Rebecca George was born in Iowa; birthplaces of either or both could be wrong, as death certificate info on listed parents often can be incorrect.
Thanks - please see my comment on Laurie's answer.
My cousin, Daphene Willoughby has access to a lot of Obituaries and she posts them on a facebook obituary page. You might also ask Pops Beaty of Facebook what he might ha'e found. Sorry, neither use Wikitree. But, they both do some great research and are willing to help folks

I checked the original record, but only the couple's names and the J.P.'s are recorded. That's always disappointing :( Any local newspapers that might have printed an announcement?

Thanks for checking.  I'll mark that off the list.

Family lore is that his parents died when he was 4 years old.  I guess whoever took him in let him keep his surname as we match with the larger Baty/Beaty clan.  But on each census his place of birth changes, we have Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and even Ireland.  We really have no idea where he was born and I'm afraid any newspaper would just give whatever he told them.  I'm not even sure if he knew where he was born.

In the end, we'll get a Y-DNA match and we will know...

thanks again.
Thanks for the star! I took a look at the profile after I posted, being a curious sort. I'm impressed by the amount of work you've done on your mystery man. Best of luck with the match.

Thanks Marion.  I think that this is a different Samuel, ours settled and died in Iowa:

Over the years, I've tracked almost every Samuel Baty/Batty/Beaty/Beatty across the country and I've been able to exclude them all via DNA and later records.
Ok, sorry.
