    3. I am trying to find the marriage records for Washington County 1879.  I can only find a partial listing and there is nothing in the IRAD.  I had called them at one time and they said they didn't have them.  The Washington County Courthouse also said the same thing. Any guidance would be most appreciated. thank you Julie Rich
