I'm am trying to find a marriage record for my great-grandfather, Clemon Comer CLAY, Sr., b. 11 Sep 1860, Bedford Co., TN; d. 02 Feb 1920 in Birmingham, AL; m. Mary Isabell CATES, 28 Apr 1889. She was b. 06 Dec 1866, Fayetteville, Lincoln Co., TN; d. 12 Nov 1955, Birmingham, AL. His parents were; William Henry CLAY, Sr. and Drucilla MITCHELL. Need this record so my mother can complete her application for the DAR.

Hanna Bella HUNTER, Abt. 1800/02; she was b. Abt. 1769, died Abt. 1850/60, Burlington Co., NJ. Their children were; Joseph, Jr., Evan, Eli, Enoch, Archie, and Rebecca. Trying to find his and her birth place and parents.
