You will have to depend on the Bbile records because during the Depression WPA workers were given the job of indexing the marriage records and lost many of them

"In 1838 the last entry was April 28. No Licenses until 10 February 1849 have been found.

The WPA workers indexing the marriage licenses stated they had searched every record but none of the missing licenses were found."

There is an obituary at the Blackshear Library for Polly Bradley, which might give you more information.

There is also an obit for "J. Bradley" dated 17 Sep 1864 at the library, which might be worth looking at.
