  1. I requested s marriage record request Sunday for Nikol Cutburth, Tulsa Country, and you apparently found one. Once you send that to me, pls cancel my membership in your search organization, for I don’t expect to have further needs of this type. She is my half sister, which is why I want to trace her.

    Thank you for your help on both occasions.

    1. Hello Elizabeth,

      I took a look in our SearchQuarry.com member’s area, and I did find phone and address information on Nikol Cutberth of Oklahoma, but I was not able to locate a marriage record. The Nikol Cutberth that I found was born in 1940 in Oklahoma. At 26 years of age, a US Census had her married to Fred A Cutberth.
