The first 4 probate books of Alcorn County (after the split) were burned in a courthouse fire.  They should have covered 1870-1913.  Starting with Probate 5 and following books are at the Corinth Chancery Clerk's office in Alcorn County.  The index books are downstairs but the actual documentation is upstairs.  Each index assigns a case number and you need that number when you search upstairs for the documentation.
