Negro Marriages 1866-1901

"NEGRO MARRIAGES"  1866 - 1909

Transcribed "As Recorded" By: Laurie Wilcox

Before the Civil War, most African American couples "jumped the broom" when they were wed. It was not until after the Civil War that most Counties/States started to record "Negro" Marriages. In 1866, the year after the Civil War ended, all "Negro" and "Mulatto" couples were requested to go to the Courthouse and have their declaration of Marriage recorded.
