MURRAY COUNTY, OK COURTHOUSE

Where to go for specific help.


NOTICE:Oklahoma did not become a State until November 16, 1907. There will be no records of anything before that date. NO STATE - NO COUNTY -  NO RECORDS!!!

The Court House is located at

West 10th and Wyandotte in Sulphur, OK.

When contacting the following offices, use some common sense with your request.  BE SPECIFIC with your request as to dates and land descriptions.  This is a small courthouse with a limited staff and space.

THEY DO NOT HAVE BIRTH OR DEATH RECORDS! 

DO NOT ask for a marriage license that spans several years (Example - 1918 to 1923).  You WILL NOT get a reply.  You would be asking them to look through a 1,000 pages and they have better things to do; like their job.


MURRAY COUNTY COURT CLERK

P.O. Box 578

Sulphur, OK 73086

Phone: 580-622-3223

 What they do:

Besides keeping the current court docket, they keep the marriage, adoption, probate, custody and mental health records.  Not all records are PUBLIC as the Court may seal any of them for any reason.  When you send in a request be specific as they do not have the time or staff to look through years of records.

What they do:
