Looking for information on my GG-Grandparents: Augusta Salisbury ROGERS and Andrew Brindley (A.B.) McCONNELL.

Augusta ROGERS was b. c1826 in (Manhatten Island??) New York. Her mother's name was Mercy (Unknown maiden name). Mercy was born in NY c1798 and both her parents were born in CT. I have found no information regarding Mercy's husband - and Augusta's father. Augusta married Andrew Brindley ("A. B.") McCONNELL on 10 September 1843 in Eaton Township, Madison County, NY. They moved to IL with many McCONNELL family members and settled on a farm near Springfield, Sangamon County, IL before the birth of their first child in 1845. Augusta died at their farm on 3 May 1878. She is buried at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois.

Andrew B. McCONNELL was the son of James McCONNELL and Sarah S. SMITH. He was b. 28 January 1819 5 miles south of Morrisville, Madison County, NY. He died 26 December 1904 on farm near Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois. He was a successful sheep raiser and farmer in both NY and IL.

Augusta has been one of my brick walls. I would really appreciate any information re her and her ROGERS (Salisbury?) family of origin. I would also like to find a marriage document for them. Where might I locate a marriage license / certificate from 1843 in Madison County, NY?
