Hello, Rosemary,
There is no marriage listed for this couple in Macon County, NC in the marriage register. I'd suggest you try Clay, Cherokee, Swain and Jackson Counties, NC and Rabun County, GA. These are surrounding counties and we often find marriage records for Macon folk in these counties and vice versa. You can get a marriage record for the cost of the copy (usually less than a dollar) from the Register of Deeds office in any county. Just write them a letter, ask them to check to see if they have a marriage record for the couple, and what the cost would be. I always enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope. Most counties (and for sure all I have listed above) are very kind and courteous and you should receive a prompt reply. Hope this helps a little!
