Have you seen the affidavit, or just the notation that one was filed?


Could he have filed an affidavit due to an earlier marriage?


BTW - I have an ancestor in Virginia who had a parental permission even though he was thirty years old!  (His father states, "He is 30 years old and can do whatever he wants.")

Subject: [APG Public List] Affidavit filing for marriage?

I have a couple marrying in 1822 in Indiana.  The marriage register indicates both filed an affidavit.  For those on the pages that did not file an affidavit, the notation "of legal age" is made.
My question:  Was there any reason for a person of legal age for a man to file an affidavit when registering for marriage?
I am thinking that the man may have been not only of legal age, but quite a bit older.  (Unconfirmed, evidence flimsy.)
