Robert Haitz and Virginia West - Marriage

Haitz West marriage, Adams County, Oho
Ohio, County Marriages, 1789 - 1994, page 267, Robert Haitz and Virginia West, 21 May 1934; digital images, Family Search, Ohio, County Marriages, 1789 - 1994 ( : accessed 24 June 2015); original records found in county courthouses.  

Robert Haitz married Virginia West on his 29th birthday, Monday,  May 16, 1934. The marriage most likely took place at St. Michael Catholic Church in Ripley, Ohio, although this document only states that Father Anthony was the priest at the church.  

Robert was the second child and first son of his parents, Joe and Henrietta (Koehler) Haitz.  He was the proprietor of a restaurant in Ripley.  His bride, Virginia, was the daughter of Thorton and Ivy (Eagle) West with whom she made her home in West Union.  She was stenographer.  

This document has at least one mistake in it.  Henrietta's last name is spelled incorrectly. It should be Koewler.   I also am wondering if Virginia's father was Thornton instead of Thorton.
