I was thrilled to get a notification about the marriage license of Albert Jay Leonard and Rose Ellen Hollenbeck being indexed on FamilySearch! I was disappointed to find that the image has not been uploaded yet, but knowing the official record exists is good enough for now. This record, in addition to the newspaper clippings previously posted, confirms the short-lived marriage did take place. Albert's will also confirms the relationship between him and Rose and their son, Robert J. Leonard. It also confirms the names of his parents, "Louis Leonard" and "Cora Shurman", as well as Rose's parents, "Jasper Hollenbeck" and "Mary Ellen McGinnis".
