Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Correcting my previous post: LUKE G. TORRENCE and SARAH J. WOOD were married on Dec. 3, 1845, not Dec. 9. I have located the source for the newspaper article announcing the marriage. The date of publication of the news article was Dec. 9, 1845.
"On the 3rd inst. (of the same month; December), by Rev. Mr. Richardson, Mr. Luke G. Torrence, of Plum Grove, to Miss Sarah J. Wood, of Highland Grove, both of Cook Co.," Chicago Democrat; December 9, 1845; Vital Records from Chicago Newspapers 1845; p. 20; Chicago Genealogical Society; Compiled by the Newspaper Research Committee; Georgina Cole Library; Carlsbad, CA.
It should be noted that Plum Grove and Highland Grove are just northwest of Chicago near Palatine Township.
