- A box of very old marriage licenses that had been stored at the
courthouse from 1876 to 1939 has been relocated to the library
Many have been picked up by family members during the past years but
there are still many left. I've checked on the names for
who have submitted queries, but if any of you would like to
on a license,
please let us know. These old unclaimed licenses are now stored at
Richards Memorial Library. You can see a list of available
licenses. A self
addressed envelope should be
sent to them if you would like a license mailed to you.
