Marriages – 1865 – 1919 – Partial Listing

contributed by Elizabeth Ramey

Editor’s note: The origin of these records is unknown.  It is an incomplete record of Perry Co. marriages between 1865 and 1919.  There may also be some duplicate records since it was converted from lists that were sorted by both brides surname and grooms surname.

Please consult the original record to confirm the accuracy of what you find here.

Searching and Sorting

To narrow your search, just type a name in the search box – surnames seem to work best.  You can also sort by Groom or Bride.

Transcriber’s Notes:

These are from the marriage books. When a marriage license was applied for, it was written in these books. But when the marriage was actually performed, it was up to the minister of the gospel (M.G.) or justice of the peace (J.P.) to go back and add the solemnization information. Some times it appears this was not done.
Also note that some of these handwritten records were very hard to read. Keep in mind that “W”, “H”, “F”, “N” all look the same. As do other letters, such as “C” and “O”. The letters “col” may appear after someone’s name. That indicates “colored”.
keep in mind that these names will not appear in the search functions of this website for 1 – 2 weeks.

Note:  It appears they went to a new form of marriage book starting in July 1881.   All Places refer to Perry County or  Tennessee unless otherwise noted.   Also, there was an additional column for “Occupation of Bridegroom” – this was also marked as “farmer” unless otherwise noted.
