Went to a Relative's Home to Elope?

While working on the Rothweiler family of St. Louis, Missouri, I came across this little item on Genealogybank.com . If you can't find where a person married, have you considered they went to a relative's residence to elope? Those might be good places to start your search for a marriage.

This one of course indicates that the groom was in the service during World War I--hinting at even more records.
