Date: 29 Sep 2001

I am searching for the marriage certificate for my grandfather and grandmother. William Benjamin MAY married Anna Mittie Lena MURPHREY (it could, of course, be spelled a number of ways) on December 17, 1884 in MS. I believe the county to be Calhoun county. I would like to know if this certificate exists before I order one. Sorry if I'm in the wrong place, but I couldn't seem to find a general 'look up' place. Thanks

Editor's Note: There will probably not be one since the Courthouse Fire of 1922 burned all those records.
