I am trying to find someone who can help me find a marriage record in Delaware County. I just found I have ancestors there.

The marriage I am looking for is for Abraham Phenix and Mary Montross. It should be around 1812.

I believe Abraham was the son of James Phenix and Catharina Bosch. Mary, I think, was the daughter of Reuben Montross and Margartha Dymond. The Montross family left Delaware Co in 1812 for Luzerne Co, PA. Abraham is in Luzerne in the 1820 census, so I think they married before they left and he went with the Montross family.

I would also be interested in finding any information that says Abraham is definitely the son of James. Right now all I have are a bunch of clues that point to that.

I would appreciate any help.
