Stewart County Tennessee Marriages Revisited, 1804-1881

Compiled by Jim Long, 2009



Description:  This 145-page book presents, for the first time in print, the entirety of surviving Stewart County, Tennessee marriage records for the period 1838-1881, including most notably, the dates that the marriages actually took place  (previous publications have shown only the License Issue date, not the Solemnized Date, for marriages from 1849 to 1881).  Almost 4,200 marriages are listed.


In addition, the book documents 135 marriages which occurred in the county from its formation in 1804 up to 1838 (the first year of surviving county records), or which occurred during the period 1876-1881, during which many of the county's marriage records are lost.  These marriages have never been compiled in a single publication, and have been discovered in court records, pension applications, newspapers, family Bibles, etc.
