From one Mary to another I would appreciate any help you could give! I will reimburse you for any copying you could give. Let me give you some info that might help to understand my search. The man I am looking for is the father of my father-in-law. According to my father-in-laws brother (whose last name is Bassham), the family often wondered if his mother married M. A. Hill. She first married P.M. Bassham and I found their record on the site you provided.

Many years ago the Bassham brother was in West Texas and run into a man who was a neighbor in Mitchell Co. when he was a small child. He asked the man if he knew M. A. Hill and if he knew for sure his mother and M.A. Hill were married. The man told him yes that he attended the wedding.

My father-in-law was born May 16, 1936 and I have his birth certificate that only states his father as M. A. Hill, age 69, born in LA. So, I am guessing that if they did indeed Marry as the neighbor said, there should be a marriage record.

M.A. Hill died when my father-in-law was about 12 (I think) and possibly around Midland, TX or New Mexico (where is unclear). I think he may have already had grown kids when my father-in-law was born. Supposedly, these kids sent some estate papers for Myrtle to sign after his death. She didn't want anything to do with his family or his estate.

What an awsome site Mitchell Co. has with the database. I didn't know it existed!
