Below FREE website has Texas marriage transcriptions. I have never been able to find any for Dallas county in that timeframe. Maybe someone can make a trip to the courthouse and check.

The Dallas County Gen Society has transcribed a few of the early ledgers. Book P marriages 1896 - 1897 published 1998. File submitted for use in the USGenWeb Archives by the Dallas Genealogical Society and used with their permission.
