McClure, JP

Believe the cutoff date for the marriages at MOBARRY from book ABC was 1854,
same as Goodspeed. All of Book ABC has been published in the quarterly.
Book D 1877-1881, F 1886-1890 and G 1890-1895 are on line. The Gap, book E
was published and is available from Lisa Lamp. (advertised at MOBARRY)
Suppose a copy of any Barry County Marriage License would be available at the
Court House.
