Clayton co. Marriage Record Index


Important notes!
1) Browse all of the records & be creative with surname spellings.
2) The original index contains 2 alphabetical lists, one for each name of the contracting parties. They have been combined into one index and alphabetized by groom surname for this on-line transcription. The transcriber has cross-checked the first entry against the second
3) Frequently the first & second entries were not identical. In those cases the
discrepancies have been noted in the column 'transcribers notes' or if 2 different page numbers were given, both have been listed in the 'page' column.
4) Possible alternate spellings or dates are also entered in the 'transcriber notes' column, along with any other pertinent information to clarify the data. Occasionally it was not apparent from either entry, which name was the groom and which was the bride, so that has been noted 'groom and bride may be reversed'. Those entries appear in the Miscellaneous page.

5) There are a few marriage licenses indexed in with the marriage records. They have been retained on this transcription.
