Instead of marriages performed "in" or at Washington Co., Pa., I pulled ALL entries for people born in or residing "in" or at Washington Co., Pa.
*These MAY help prove someone was born in Washington Co. PA -- since births were not recorded this early in the county.

Source Information: 

These marriages from 1885-1889 were taken from original volumes housed at and copied by the Pa Archives for online use.  (*The website states: "The original records extend beyond this date, to 1991...")

These records are often called "Marriage Returns", meaning someone (usually the preacher) reported to the Court House Clerk, "Yep, they actually got hitched."  Getting a marriage license does not a marriage make.  (And, licenses were not required this early.)   The Index starts at this URL:
