In answer to the question of where to get marriage records.

The court house would have the record later than that.

Hello List,
I had thought that there was a Kingfisher Times and when I started reading again I could nof find it. but yesterday when I needed a new roll there it was. so will go back and read it also for 1906 and later print what is extra on it as I did one mounth and found some that was not listed on the Star. My aim is to record any deaths that are not listed in the cemeteries. and where they died and are burried. This will be in a book at the library safe room.
