    • Leonard and Eva were most likely married in the St. Mauritius German Catholic Church in Ashland. This church was originally built in 1856, then was rebuilt in 1900 and just recently destroyed in 2015. St. Mauritius has been merged in with St. Joseph's (now "St. Charles Borromeo" parish) in Ashland. This church was under the diocese of Allentown, PA, which has very strict rules in place to guard their sacramental records for privacy and will not give out any copies nor information about any of their records, unless you are the person whose records you are requesting. Apparently these records are not microfilmed anywhere either.
