Where Was That Justice of the Peace?

If your ancestors were married by a Justice of the Peace and the only location on the marriage record is the county, try and determine where in the county the Justice of the Peace lived. It is not proof your ancestors lived there, but chances are that your ancestors lived somewhat close to the Justice of the Peace and that he was familiar with at least one of them.

Could be place within the county to start looking if you have no idea and the names are common. A place to start looking--not proof of anything else.
