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
function under "Edit" to locate specific names.
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 issued.
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.
Book 00, Pages 1-15
