I have been searching for marriage information for years on my Great
Grandfather, Andrew Capwell (Capwill) and have had no luck. Andrew lived
with his parents, James W. and Azubah Capwill in Kendall in 1880. His wife

If so, what would have happened to the mortuary records?
Any suggestions as to where else I could search would be greatly
