Marriage Licenses

Transcribed ... from the official Clayton County courthouse records. Researchers are urged to browse these records, the handwriting was very hard to read & errors can be expected. Years included: 1855 I 1856 I 1857 I 1858 I 1859 I 1860

"Licenses obtained" ... as reported in the local newspapers. Note: the reports sometimes were published differently by the local papers (ie: Elkader Argus reported them as they got them, whereas the Register waited and printed them monthly) ... researchers should verify when the license was actually obtained (items open new window on the document board)
