I am not exactly sure what state they lived in when they got married. The first record of them in the US that I found was the 1880 Census. All the records I have for them put them in Bakerstown, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania and Richland, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

I did find one somewhat promising lead. I see a John Aiken married a Mary Bowick in 1873 in New York, but I am not sure if this is them.

The date of the marriage is within the range on the census or very close.

My main problem is finding anything solid before they arrive on the 1880 Census.

I am hoping the death records I am sending for will give me some more information. And yes, I am going to try and get to the public library this week to see if I can view Mary's obituary. John's is going to be a bit tougher, but when I get the death record it should make things easier, then I can at least search by an exact date in 1905. I looked up some history of the paper and it was around back in 1905.

Thanks for the suggestion.
