Wedding Wednesday: 1840 Marriage Certificate

I came across this marriage certificate while working on a research project. It is dated 20 February 1840 but gives no indication where the union took place.  

It reads:
Marriage Certificate
“It is not good for man to be alone.” – Bible
To all whom it may concern: - This certifies that John Entrehin (sp?) and Elizabeth Conrey (sp?) were, according to the ordinance of God, on the twentieth day of February A.D. 1840 united in the bonds of holy matrimony. Whom, therefore, God hath joined together, let no man ever put asunder.
A.G. Morrison, Minister of the Gospel  

The paper was in among various random items from estate auctions. There is no writing on the back. 


Wedding Wednesday is a genealogical prompt of GeneaBloggers.
