Box 67, Stevensville, MT, 59870); these marriages are based on patron submissions, mostly in the form of family group sheets, so all marriages are in need of further documentation.  The family group sheets may be purchased from Yates, but the sheet is unlikely to cite its documentation (these records now also online at Ancestry.com).

The page is water-damaged and partly unreadable (the page image at Genealogy.com is somewhat better than the one at Ancestry.com); this extraction is my best effort.  Abija is indexed "Gorga Ah" really.  I wouldn't have found him if Clifford hadn't be indexed correctly.
