Hi Darleen:

I know this isnt exactly what you asked for, but I thought that I could help you narrow down your search. In the 1910 census for the family it stated that they had been married for 5 years-so it would be 1904 or 1905. I couldn't find their marriage on the index either, so they may have been married in Washington State where it was faster and cheaper back then. Have you tried writing to the clerk of Washington County to see if they have the record? That would be a good place to start.
Also- on the Oregon death index it shows a Syrus W Shipley who died in Washington County in 1954. (I think the spelling is off on the index because all of the records show his name as being spelled with a C.)
Name: Shipley, Syrus W
County: Washington
Death Date: 29 Jan 1954
Certificate: 1209
Spouse: Lura
In about 4 more weeks you will be able to order his death certificate from the state archives. Let me know if you need that information.
Hope this helps with your search.
