TIP:  If you are looking for marriage records between August, 1852 thru March, 1855 and after October, 1885-- these should be able to be found at the Perry County Court House or on microfilm at the Perry Historians Library.  If the time-period is before 1852 and after 1855, up to 1885, these records, if available, would have to be found in Church registers or in Bible Records--- both of which the Perry Historians Library has a rather large collection of in their holdings.  Unfortunately, the majority of the church registers are not indexed and you would need to know approximately what church your ancestors were affiliated with, in order to find the documentation.  
Also, there is no index of "Brides" until 1894 and the maiden names of the Mothers of the Bride and Groom are not provided until 1913.
