      Go to the ALGENWEB Jackson County Website click
      on
      Jackson County Archives then click on Vital
      Records, Birth, Death, Marriage this will take
      you to a rootsweb.com search engine that will
      search through all the Jackson County Archives
      for the Surname entered. The marriages
      transcribed so far are for 1851 thru 1881, any
      marriages outside this time frame will have to be
      done by lookups by myself or someone who has
      ancestry.com. Though the marriages on ancentry
      are supposed to be from 1850 to 1921 I have seen
      virtually none for after 1900.

      If you are looking for someone married in another
      county or state you will have to lookup that
      county's USGENWEB site and see what they have and
      what each county's requirments are for ordering.
      Madison County for one has an excellent website
      but some counties have very little. Some counties
      do have someone listed who will do lookups at the
      courthouse for you.

      Marriage certificates will include the name of
      the Groom and Bride, who performed the ceremony,
      and sometimes the parents names (though I have
      never seen them listed), where performed, i.e.
      the bride's house.

      The Jackson County Probate Court needs the
      groom's and bride's name, date of marriage, who
      performed the ceremony and the OS Page number.
      The lists at the Jackson County website has the
      OS Page number and sometimes includes a license
      number though ancentry.com does not. There are
      two marriages per page so you will get the one
      you asked for plus someone else's. Cost is $2.00
      per page and a SASE included with the request.
