Volume 2 -
19th Century Marriage Records
This collection of marriage records from 1826 to 1857 was located in a private collection. The records were borrowed and photographed with permission. They include ministers' returns, marriage licenses, marriage bonds, consent forms, and original signatures, primarily from the 1840s. Due to time constraints, there is no index to this CD nor list of names appearing in the records.
3 - Letters and Photographs
19th century letters from the Hammer family + photos of the Byrd, Harper, and Hammer families, photos of items from the Ambrose Meadows home and the Mauzy home in Franklin that burned in the 1924 fire.
4-8 contain the index pages for the books listed under each volume
title. They will allow you to locate the books that have entries
ancestor. CDs of full books will be available as time
allows. I will
film these books in the order they are requested. For
example: if you
order Volume 5 and find entries for your ancestor in the index for
1810-1817, send me an email requesting that I copy that book and put it
on CD as soon as possible. Future planned volumes include
marriage bonds and the early Births, Marriages, and Deaths Index.
