Lost Marriage Records of Russell Co., Va. 1848-1853

Compiled by Michael Dye


While on a research trip to the courthouse in Lebanon, Va., I discovered the records for the following 157 marriages stuffed away in a box in the attic of the courthouse. These records consisted of 3 different types of small slips of paper: 1) permission slips from parents written to the clerk of courts, giving permission for minor children to marry, 2) records signed by the clerk indicating that a marriage license had been issued to a couple and 3) ministers returns for marriages performed giving the date that he married a couple. Some of the marriages were only referenced in one of the types of records, others in more than one. In those where more than one of the types of records were present, I used the latest dated record as that would be the one closest to the actual marriage date. The information inside of brackets () was not on the original records and has been added by me from other sources, mainly the 1850 & 1860 Russell County censuses as well as marriage records for parents from other counties, etc. Since the marriage book for marriages prior to 1853 has long since disappeared, it appears that these are the only surviving records for these marriages.

Note: P = Parental permission slip, L = Marriage License, M = Ministers return
