I have a hardcopy of the index for the Alcorn County, MS Colored marriages from 1866-1870, 1892-1903 and 1913-1921. Email me and I’ll gladly do a lookup for you. It will tell you the person’s name and what page their marriage license is on. With that information, you can write to the county courthouse and obtain a copy of the actual license or record.
These are slaves who were recorded in a book belonging to Joshua Chaffin, who was sheriff of Amelia County in the early 1800s. There are many families that are able to reconstructed.
These were copied from the Tennessee State Archives website.
These are interesting because they are listed in a book called “Contracts”…no hint at all that some of them are marriage contracts. I also added a column when I attempted to find the couple on the 1870 Wayne County census…I found quite a few. Hope this helps someone!
These are a list of marriages of former slaves I extracted from the Hempstead County, AR Freedmen’s Bureau Records.
These are some extracts of labor contracts from the Freedmen’s Bureau that operated in Rocky Mount, NC. Many are likely between former slaves and their former slaveowners.
These pages were also copied from the Hardin County,TN Court records.
