The Sutton Law introduced to the state legislature in
1850 approved in 1852
County clerks shall preserve list of birth, marriages, and deaths. Some counties started and have records up to 1911 when the federal government started the vital records. Records during the civil war are few. Depending on the county clerk depends on how much information is recorded. Check with the county court or the local genealogy society to see if they have transcribed birth and death records.
The Henry County Library has all the wills, marriages, deaths, etc
that have been microfilmed from the county. Copies from microfilm are
very reasonable at $.10 a page. Indexes have been compiled for most of
the microfilms. These are not available at the Archives in
