MARRIAGES 1807-1837

Compiled by Judy Henley Phillips

Our first marriage book for Franklin County begins January, 1838. There is no known marriage book prior to that date. For many years I have been compiling a reconstructed first marriage book for Franklin County - a spinoff from another project. As the cc for Franklin County, I decided to make my research available to those who visit my page.

Some of these couples lived in the part of Franklin that became Coffee County in 1836. I invite you to submit additions or corrections for inclusion here. The requirements for a marriage to be included is that the marriage should have come from as reliable a source as possible. Please state the source. See below. The submitter's name will be given.
