When researching marriage records, it is the "application" you want.A couple fill out the application with their personal information to obtain a license to get married.After they are married they will receive a marriage certificate.But, for the time period you want the most you probably will find at the county is a marriage registry type of book.Name of groom, bride, person who performed the ceremony and date (some times date of license and date of marriage will be separately noted.)If one or both are underage, then a parent or guardian will be listed as giving permission for them to marry.
I would try tracking down siblings of Miles Nathan, see if you can find a death certificate for them.Their families may have had the correct information for that record.
The fact that Miles Nathan and the "other" Albert follow a smiliar pattern, and both die in Delta Co, TX sounds like there might be a family tie -- maybe a cousin?Could be both Alberts were named for a common grandfather, uncle etc.You might see if you can find anyone working on the Albert who died in Delta Co, TX.
By using the Search this Forum box, and entering less common names, county names etc you sometimes can find a "cousin."My Ruebin Yates was born somewhere in NC, first son (my ancestor) was born somewhere in KY.Ruebin named a son Avory, and I entered that in the search box.A lady had an Avory, about 13 years younger then Ruebin and therefore to old to be Ruebin's son.But, she had county names for NC and KY.With that info, on my next trip to Salt Lake City I managed not only to tie her Avory and my Ruebin as brothers, but found five more siblings, too.
If we can't go straight up the family tree, then we have to try other branches.They often go back to the original branch.
