Help Finding a Michigan Marriage

Don's Question:
I am interested in finding the marriage of my great grandfather, Christian Schulz to Amelia Maedel Bernier (Barney)..
I know that Amelia's first husbend, Pierre Bernier, died in April of 1860 in St. Clair Co., Michigan.
I also know that Edward Schulz, the eldest son of Christian and Emilie Schulz was born March 17, 1863 in St Clair Co., Michigan.
The 1910 Census states that the marriage of Christian to Emilia was the second marriage for both of them.I have searched Michigan marriages to no avail. Any suggestions?

AskOlive Answer: Hello Don

Michigan Marriages on Family Search start 1868. 1851-1875 is available on some counties on Ancestry.com. St. Clair is not one of them. However Dibean Database for St Clair Co. shows the marriage of

Bernier Pierre to Emilie Dorethea Madle 22 DEC 1855

You may want to try local churches. Go to St Clair Co. MI Genweb
and chose CHURCHES from left side bar to get a list. You may also need to try neighbouring counties other than St. Clair.
