Adoption Records
The County Clerk's office advised all adoption records are sealed and require a court order to view.

 
Marriage and Divorce Records
Marriage bonds, affidavits, licenses, and certificates were kept by each county beginning about 1890 or when the county was created. Many marriages in the territorial era were not recorded, and some were recorded in county courthouses in Arkansas, Kansas, and Texas. Write to the appropriate county clerk for information. Divorces were granted after 1907 by the district courts or the circuit court in each county. You can write to the clerk of the court for information. Source: FHC Research Guide
