Right, that is their marriage date, confirmed several times in his Civil War pension application.
Plus confirmation from county clerks and the J. P.
In 1860 he was living between 2 Harding relatives in Salt Creek Twp. He and his wife had no children at that time.
This is the 1880 entry.

I've not located them yet in 1870 but will get around to it one of these days.
He's dead by 1900 and Mary Jane is remarried and widowed again. Her second husband, Gilbert L. Mack, died in Vermillion Co., 26 Jan. 1897. She did regain her widow's pension. Minor child Lewis's middle name was "Walter" and he was born 16 Aug. 1870.
It was a multi-page file. James contacted severe rheumatism while in Chatanooga, TN and it became chronic and it finally damaged his heart and lungs.
