Some notes about these records:

   "Lincoln County Marriages, From the Formation of the County to the Admission of the State (1781-1792)", excerpted from "Lincoln Couty Records" by Lucian Beckner, Vol. 12 (May 1914), 77-88; (Sept. 1914), 89-99.
"The dates given are mostly the date of the issuance of the license, but in a few instances the date of the marriage ceremony is given; this being obtained from the few returns of the officiating ministers."


   "Early Marriages Records of Mercer County [1786-1800]," by Mrs. T. Henry Coleman, from Vol. 20 (Jan. 1922), 9-20. Compiled by Mrs. T. Henry Coleman, Jane McAfee Chapter, N.S., D.A.R., Harrodsburg, Ky. Pages 550-561.
Minister's names included. Editor's note: " There may some inaccuracies in this copy, due to the great difficulty in deciphering some of the names found in the original records."


   "Marriage Bonds of Shelby County 1792-1800." Copied from original records by Mrs. E. B. Smith, Shelbyville, Kentucky. Arranged for publication by Miss Nina M. Visscher, from Vol 23 (Jan.1925), 74-99 Pages 682-707.
Miss Visscher notes that when two dates are given it is probably due to the copiest giving both date of bond and return by minister; names following bride's name are bondsmen, witnesses or minister.
