From the County Clerk

The clerk's office works hard all year to ensure all pioneers who have recently passed away are included in the list of Empty Saddles, but we may miss someone.

To qualify for Empty Saddles, decedents must be at least 50 years of age at death, native-born, or have lived in Clay County for at least 50 years.

The annual list runs from July 1 through June 30.

Please contact us to make sure we haven't missed your loved one. Call or email Sasha at (940) 538-4631 or
