PRE 1874 Marriage Records
Alphabetized by the Grooms
Extracted by Kaye Vernon

Since the Parker County Courthouse burned in 1874 there are no official records of marriages that took place in Parker County from its establishment in 1856 until 1874. These marriages records have been obtained from several sources, bible records, personal papers, the actual marriages records or family histories. This is by no means a complete listing of all the marriages that were performed in Parker County, but we feel fortunate to have collected this many for our files. Due to human error in typing and transcription there may be mistakes.
