Marriage License Applications--Part 1
St Joseph Co., MI

These marriage license marriage applications appeared in local newspapers during the very early years of this century. For the most part they are not indentifiable but it's fairly safe to assume that most of them would be from the Burr Oak Acorn and the Sturgis Democrat as they've been gleaned from the papers of Harry and Geneva Smith, through the generiousity of their daughter, Shirley Elmer and her willingness to have her parents' life work at collecting these most important tidbits of our ancestors lives available for all of us to make use of. I've included dates when they've been available and I'm not able to provide any more information on any of them other than what is shown here.
