Bryants of Jasper florida

My great,grandparents were Walter Lee Brady and Sarah Missouri Bryant. Both were from White Springs, Hamilton county. They were supposedly married in 1905 , I calculated this from the 1910 census. I have not found Sarah on the 1900 Census. Does anyone have info on this family? Sarah is a major dead end for me. Also rumors are her mother was Cherokee Indian ( I know, we all have these rumors). I figured with her unique name "Sarah Missouri" I would find her sooner, but no dice.

I'm looking for a marriage record for Sarah and Walter, figuring it would have the parents on this. I cannot find an on-line database with this record. Can anyone in Hamilton county look these folks up if they happen to be doing research locally?

Ive written up a blurb on this on a blog of mine:

I know nothing about Missouri Sarah. Even her name, my family always called her Missouri but that could have been her middle name.

I dont know if she had brothers or sisters or who her parents were. I do know she came from White Springs, probably Jasper and was married to Walter Lee Brady. They had 4 kids, Frank,Council,Annie and Juanita (my grandmother). They eventually moved to Polk county Fl. and divorced. She remarried a James A Phillips in Polk County.

Now this is supposed to be the Cherokee link in my family, but she looks pretty white to me. I appreciate any and all help, I have exhausted quite a few avenues so far. I do quite a bit of DNA testing for genealogy as well. Ive taken an mtDNA test and found no match's.

Here is the information that I have from Census's. 1910,1920,1935. Ive provided exactly what they say, even though the children's names are not totally correct. The names of her Children are: Annie,Frank,Council and Juanita. one census says "W M" I'm not sure who that is, maybe a child that passed away.
