Dear Sholty Researchers

No bride nor groom with surname SHOLTY was recorded in the Bartholomew Marriages 1821-1920.
ALLEY, Mary Jane --- married Jesse Laymons in 1840.
ALLEY, Nancy Ann --- married Jesse Penney in 1864.
ALLEY, Herschel B --- married Josie E Dillon in 1882.

"That's all she wrote." Source: Bartholomew Co, IN Marriages, 1821-1920"       Carolyne Stultz compiled set of cross-indexed marriage books; parents included for marriages from 1882. email:

Quoting from some of your messages:
"...married in Bartholomew County in 1857, Andrew Sholty and Mary Ann Alley." [This appears to be incorrect.]

"Or married in Boone Co, IN..." Another message said: "... the bride was Mary or Nancy Alley." Whatever was used as your first source --- this source should be revisited, to clear up what the information actually stated, and which statements have reliability. Noticed that other Sholty researchers leaned toward "Nancy". Perhaps they have obtained copies of some B-M-D certificates.

Two males were born in 1915, to two different fathers: Frederick Sholty and Archie Sholty. Neither mother was Mary or Nancy Alley. The location was HOWARD County, Indiana. Source:

You might find some of your family in the US Census of 1880. The Mormons released this year, a searchable national index on 56 CD-ROMs. The information is the next best source, after seeing actual images of original 1880 Census film. These CDs may be studied at the Mormons' Family History Centers, and other Libraries.

Hard work may bring some good luck.
