 This couple was married in Missouri in the mid-19th century. Those who'd like to see just the marriage entry can click on the image above for a larger view. The entire two pages of the entry can be seen below. The entry is the one on the upper left of the left hand page below.


  1. Westley Jones and Impa… Elam; they were married in Macon County? on the 28th of July 1840.
    They should have FIRED this county clerk!

  2. Looks like W..... Jones and S...... Elam
    Glad I'm not looking for this Couple!!
    Even the capital "S" used elsewhere in the image ( State & Sept. )is not consistent.
    No problem with Magnification of the images though -- up to 1000% and can go higher -- not that it helps at all.

  3. Westley Jones and Imelda Elam.
