I was verifying this info before I made the posting and I had the place of their marriage wrong. Here is the record and I noticed something very interesting:

|Source Title 1:||Lake County Indiana|
|Source Title 2:||Index to Marriage Record 1850 - 1920 Inclusive Vol|

The Works Progress Administration had created indexes. T he WPA began to index vital records, county-by-county for the entire state of Indiana, but the agency was abolished before the indexing was completed. The WPA index includes marriages for eighty-six of the ninety-two Indiana counties.
