Noah married Florenza BUCK about 1863 probably in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., Ohio. There have been numerous attempts to locate a marriage license for this couple. Knox Co., IN, Ross Co., OH, and Hamilton Co., OH have all been searched. The information coming down through the family is that they married in Cincinnati. There was a large destruction of records in a courthouse fire in Hamilton Co., Ohio, which may account for the inability to locate the record.
