Treasure Chest Tuesday - 1865 Marriage Record of Elijah McKnew and Jane Whittle

This week's Tuesday's Treasure is the 1865 marriage record for Elijah McKnew and Jane Whittle in Tuolumne County, California:

The extracted information from this record is:

*  Groom Last Name:  MCKNEW
*  Groom first Name:  Elijah
*  Bride Last Name:  WHITTLE
*  Bride first Name:  Jane
*  Place:  Tuolumne County
*  Date:  12 Nov 1865
*  County of Record:  Tuolumne
*  State:  California
*  Volume: 1
*  Page:  195

The source citation for this record is:

"Western States Marriage Index." indexed database, Brigham Young University–Idaho Special Collections (http://abish.byui.edu/specialCollections/westernStates/search.cfm : accessed 1 January 2018); Elijah McKnew and Jane Whittle marriage entry.

This record of the marriage of Elijah McKnew (1837-1912) and Jane Whittle (1847-1921) in Tuolumne County, California is a Derivative Source record.  The Original Source record is in a Tuolumne County, California record book, Volume 1, page 195.  

I looked in the FamilySearch Catalog for Tuolumne County, California, and identified FHL Microfilm 1,305,265 which probably includes the actual marriage certificate.  The records have been microfilmed and indexed, but the indexed record is unavailable at present on FamilySearch.  I can view the digital microfilm at a FamilySearch Library.  I put it on my to-do list.

Elijah Pickrell McKnew (1836-1912) and Jane Whittle (1847-1921) are my wife's great-grandparents.
