Coal County, Oklahoma Marriages 1893 to 1912


The book, Marriages-Southern District; Oklahoma, Indian Territory, Book One, 1897-1901, by Lynda Stout Massey and Clara Massey Nash, is a record of 1,236 marriages of the area of Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations, with South McAlester as Court Seat. This book is in the Office of the Court Clerk; Atoka County Courthouse; Atoka, OK 74535. Certified copies are available from that office for a fee.

The following marriages are not included in that book. Vivian A. Watkins of Coalgate OK. furnished these marriage items, which were copied from The Coalgate Courier, Coalgate Non-Pareil, and other newspapers, and are for the period of 1893 to 1912.

"No. 6" refers to the community near Mine #6 in Phillips. Often a locale is designated by a number, which refers to a nearby coal mine. Cottonwood, a small unincorporated community about one mile north of Coalgate, is referred to as "No. 2" as often as Cottonwood, even to this day of no mines at all.

Some of the dates given are of newspaper issue.
