Marriage Notes for JOSEPH JOHNS and LYDIA HAASE:

The Hancock County courthouse and county records were burned twice, once in 1862 when the Confederates set fire to the town upon Union occupation, and again in the early 1870's.  Therefore, it is possible that the exact marriage date for Joseph and Lydia Johns may never be known.  I have placed their marriage date at about 1863 (when Lydia was 18 and Joseph was 19) based on the birth of the first child Melissa, thereby rejecting Karen Hedrick's supposition that Melissa was not fathered by Joseph.
