Shelley - Thank you for the address of the Franklin County Courthouse in Rocky Mount, Va. I did not realize that the marriage records that Ancestry.com lists did not have all the pertinent info, like the parents' names. That is really critical info when searching for ancestors! I will send off my $1.00 tomorrow for a copy of Clarissa Richards and James Williams wedding record. Can you give me the address for the Richmond office that would have the original record? So appreciate your help. Are you a Richards or Williams cousin?
