1846 Marriage record - Fisher and South

I was curious if someone might have access to the following marriage record:

Mrs. Mary Fisher
Spouse: John South
Date: October 22, 1846
Location: Lee County, Iowa
Book: Volume 1, Book III
Entry Number: #303

I have reason to believe that the marriage was of Mrs. Mary FISHER to John K LANE, rather than South. I base this on the marriage of Nancy FISHER (about 14 years of age) to Allen PENROD in 1845. Nancy married William GRUBB in 1861 in Lee County, then Andrew JARRETT in Champaign County, Illinois in 1877. Her mother, Mary LANE, was residing with her in the 1880 census, and died at her home in 1890. Looking at the 1850 US census and the 1856 Iowa census, I see that John K and Mary LANE are listed very near to David and Hannah PENROD, the parents of Allen PENROD. I know that in poor script, the "LAN" of LANE could be mistaken for the "SOU" of South. I've not been able to find an image of this record online, only a transcription. Thank you!
