Robert E. McDermott and Corintha C. Bazzell

I'm still researching the Bazzell family and connections via marriage. I found a marriage record (online) for Corintha C. Bazzell and Robert E. McDermott. They were married in Marshall county (where Corintha C. was living with her mother, Nancy H. (Wyatt) and grandmother Lucretia (Dunn) Wyatt. Corintha was the daughter of Richard R. Bazzell who had died by 1880.

Robert E. McDermott married Corintha C. on August 21, 1880.

I did find the family later in the 1910 census of Calloway county.

  County: Calloway
  Relation: Husband
  Relatives: Wife Corintha C 53, Kentucky
Daughter Leoda 13, Kentucky

I have many questions related to this couple.

1) Does anyone have access to the marriage records with some details? I was hoping to find who were witnesses to the marriage.

2) I discovered that I had another McDermott in my Bazzell database. Prentiss Darnell had sent me a Bazzell family history that mentioned a Henrietta Ella Bazzell married a Kassa McDermott in 1901. I also found this family in the 1910 census. (Henrietta Ella Bazzell was the daughter of Richard Monroe Bazzell and Elizabeth Cardine Thurmond.) Kassa is about the right age to be the son of my Corintha C. and Robert E. McDermott. I was hoping that someone with access to the 1900 census of Calloway might be able to find the Robert E. McDermott family for me?

3) Robert E. McDermott died December 1, 1949 in Calloway county. I found him in the Kentucky Death Index. Any information about where he is buried or his wife? Corintha C. would be very gratefully appreciated!

Here is the 1910 record for Kassa (Kausey) McDermott and his wife, Etta Bazzell.
