I would like to thank Mrs. Graves for allowing me to transcribe
her book, First 50 Years of Lewis County Marriage Records
and place it
online for all Lewis County researchers to utilize. It will be
transcribe as it was originally written. Please send questions
regarding dates and spellings to Mrs. Graves. Use the "Find"
function under "Edit" to locate specific names.
Due to its size, the book has been divided into page groups of 20.
The first column is the Groom, second column is the
Bride, third column is the JP/Magistrate/Minister,
and the last column is the date of marriage. If the record is
marked "No Return Issued", the date is the issue date.
This book is composed of marriages recorded in Lewis County, TN
covering the first fifty years, 1844 through 1894. Note no marriage
forms were returned to be recorded in the year 1863. This did not
invalidate the marriages, since it was not required as are today's
laws. These are marked No Return, but I have put the date they were
The correct spelling of names was attained as closely as possible,
considering the faded pages of record books and poor penmanship.
Some, I feel sure, the clerk misspelled, but with no proof, they were
copied as listed.
For those who enjoy local history, names and lineage, the following
pages are for your pleasure and knowledge.
Appreciation is tendered, to those who have contributed their time
and moral support.
Please check back for the rest of this transcription.
