Divorce Records

Can someone tell me if the district clerk has divorce records dating back to the early 1880's.

I'm looking for the divorce papers of William Cornellius Perry and his wife Elizabeth Jane McElyea Perry. They moved from Dunklin Co MO shortly after the 1880 census. By 1900 she is living with one of their son William Athey Perry in Tarrant Co TX and he is living with their daughter Laura Geer who remained in Dunklin Co MO. Naturally both gave married or widowed for the marital status, however, her death certificate dated 23 Nov 1910 in Nocona, Montague, TX, has her marital status as divorced (per their eldest son Humphrey who provided the info for the certificate). Unfortunately the person who wrote down the info on the certificate failed to note the burial location. I can only assume that she's buried in a cemetery in or near Nocona and maybe in an unmarked grave.

Thank you in advance for any info provided.
