  41. Marriage Records, "Iroquois County Marriage Applications 2 April 1881-31 December 1881". I question the title of this document. I believe it should be "Marriage Registrations" rather than applications. This document shows a date of 2 August. The church record is clear that they were married on 1 August. The pastor would likely have gone to Watseka to register the marriage on 2 August.
