No Marriage License for These People

    As I was browsing through a volume of marriage licenses from Mobile County, Alabama, I came across the first page of Book 291. Across the top was written:  
Lists of names of persons to whom
Marriage Licenses must not be issued

     What could cause a name to appear on such a list.  Is this what you did when you didn't like a daughter's beau?  I wonder if any of these couples eventually got married.  It would be interesting to learn the story behind the names.
