Alcorn County, Mississippi, Marriage Records 1939-1950

The Inman Genealogy room has received the microfilm rolls, Marriages in Alcorn County, Mississippi, 1939-1950. This film includes all available indices from the same time frame.

Corinth, Alcorn County, Mississippi is just across the Tennessee state line and during this time frame, which includes the war years, there was no waiting period to get married there as there was in Tennessee and elsewhere. Also females could legally marry at the age of fourteen. Many, not only West Tennesseans, took advantage of this “stepping over the line” to get married there.

The film is being processed to create a master index which will be available online in the future. To date, we have indexed many marriages performed there from the following states, AL, AR, CA, CO, DC, FL, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MD, MI, MN, MO, MS, NE, NC, NJ, NM, NY, OH, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX, VA, WI and WV. This is an ongoing project.

The records include, but are not limited to, the names and ages of the marrying couple; the names and addresses of parents and/or other family members and their addresses. If you are aware of the date that your individuals married we will be happy to confirm, at no charge, whether they married in Alcorn County, MS. Copies may be purchased for $5 each.
