There is a 1900 tax list but no Wardlows are listed on it. There may or may not have been a voter's registration as early as when the county formed in 1876 BUT it is more likely that the county government simply went by the tax list between 1876 and 1880.

Guardianship records would have been filed with the District Clerk of Fisher County rather than the County Clerk as filing for guardianship would have been a matter for a Judge to decide. Of course, there may have been only one clerk at that time. The two offices are separate at this time.

The Fisher County Federal Census of 1880 lists no Wardlows.

I can check the cemetery book for grave markers if you think any Wardlows may have been buried in the county.
