Marriage Records of Scioto County, Ohio, 1803-1860. Caryn R.F. Shoemaker. (1887). Scioto County, Ohio, lies directly north of the Kentucky counties of Greenup and Lewis. Its marriage records begin in the year 1803.
Unlike most marriage records, which usually consist of a single entry in a marriage register, Scioto County marriage records derive from a whole range of sources. This present work draws on every available record in the county courthouse--affidavits (applications for license), letters of [parental] consent, ministers? returns, and marriage record books maintained by the county clerk. Compilers Shoemaker and Rudity have assembled a definitive list of 9,000 marriages performed in this southern Illinois county between 1803 and 1860. Each record contains the names of the bride and groom, the date of the marriage, a source citation, and often ages, places of residence, and the names of parents. For convenience, the records are listed in alphabetical order by grooms? names; brides and all others mentioned in the records are listed separately in the index.Genealogical.com publishes genealogy books and CDs.
