Historical Document- Marriage Record: Thomas Edward Stogner & Susan Cordelia McCain

Marriage Record for Edward Stogner and Miss Cordelia McCain
dated 19 March 1895

Attached to the affidavit is a note supposedly written by the bride's father, Edward McCain:
March 19, 1895
Mr G C Mayson, Clerk of Chancery & Circuit Court
Sir you will please to issue licens to Ed 
Stogner to marry my daughter 
Cordelia MaCain and oblige
your friend
Edward MaCain

The affidavit signed by Cordelia's father was probably necessary due to the fact that she was just 16 years old at that time.  I don't have proof of their exact date of marriage as the bottom of this record was not completed.
