Marriage Jan 22, 1815, Benjamin and Lovisa (Rice) Sheldon

Our records are in fairly good shape for the Sheldon side of the family, however, one mystery remains (see messages on the RICE forum) as to who Lovisa Rice (b. July 8, 1796) was. They were married in Deleware County NY and I've searched books posting New York marriages, but the extent of the book was into the late 1790's. Deleware became a county just before 1800. Is there a site on the Internet to search marriages for this time / location?

Benjamin and Lovisa had 7 children and the family moved to LaGrange, Lorain County, Ohio, in approximately 1850. They are interred in the LaGrange Cemetery, Ohio.

If anyone could assist in the NY area, I would appreciate your help. We are looking for her parents.
