I know Whitfield county split from Murray county in 1851. So I figure I will post my request here as well. I have found my gg grandfather's marriage certificate. He married a Mary Bass in McCracken County, KY in 1863. It gave his age of 21 so I estimate he was born around 1842 and lists the county he was born in as Whitfield County, GA (didn't exist in 1842 so would probably have been Murray County). Not much in the way of birth records on Ancestry. Also found no Herndon's living in and around the area between 1850-1860. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
