Marriage Records
done: September 4 & 5, 2001
by Diane R. Reid

I've rearranged the information slightly for readability purposes. Some abbreviations have been expanded (e.g. Presbyterian from Presbyt). Unless otherwise noted, the persons were single (bachelor/spinster).

Note: when (?) appears beside an entry, it denotes a guess at what the handwriting said.
