and Lincoln County Marriages
Boyle County "Colored" marriages are in
segregated volumes, up to about 1943, and in integrated volumes from
Book 44 on. Book 1C is the "Declarations of
Marriage", and Books 2-22 and 44-54 are the legal "colored"
marriages. One volume, 19W, contains African-American records
intermixed with white records. This file includes Boyle County
African-American marriages from 1865 up to about 1965.
Lincoln "Colored" marriages are in
segregated volumes, but they are filed in an integrated manner.
Book 12 is the "Declarations of Marriage", and Books 6, 9, 17,
18, 22, 26 and 41 are the books of legal "colored" marriages.
This file combines all marriages in these books, and is arranged
alphabetically by both bride and groom.
Both Boyle and Lincoln marriages are
combined in this file's index, as many families were living in both
counties over time.
