Fayette County, Alabama
~ Marriage Book 1 ~
June 1866 – 20 August 1879)
Book 1 of the Fayette County marriage records contains 664 pages.
page lists two marriages – top (a) and bottom (b) – with the exception
of pages 10b, 106a, 149b, 405b, 502b, 511b and 600b; and some pages are
blank: 532, 533, 568, 569, 596, 597, 601, 646, 647 and 659–663.
Even so, nearly 1,300 individual records and more than
3,000 names are listed here. We are grateful to Don Bynum for
selflessly poring over microfilm to painstakingly transcribe these
records. Thanks, Don!
Notes: The data was entered into the Book in an obviously
haphazard fashion. While it
"generally" follows the order of marriage date, there are a lot of
"local" variations. I checked my transcriptions against Melba Sims' and Adrienne
Thompson's transcriptions. Where we had different
intrepretations, I mostly used theirs; however, in several cases I
stayed with mine. So, there are a few records where this file
will differ (slightly – mostly relating to spelling) from these other
files. There are at least 10–20 duplications, but some of the
duplications have slightly different data – so I left them in. ~ Don Bynum
