FIRST 100 MARRIAGE LICENSES
In Schuyler County, Illinois
 Taken from: Combined History of Schuyler and Brown Counties, Illinois 1686-1882, Early Marriages
  The following list includes the first one hundred marriages in Schuyler County after its organization as appears from the license and certificates.

  The spelling of the names is according to that of the original licenses. The "L. P." following the  name of the person performing the marriage ceremony indicated that he was a Local Preacher.  Where "Esq." is found it is understood, of course, as a designation for "Justice of the Peace."  The "M. G." is Minister of God.

  TIP: Remember that marriage licenses were applied for and therefore there is also an application for it.  Applications often have parents names, parent or guardian permission, birth dates and location and sometimes occupation.

Typed in the following order: License  number (#); Date of License; Name of groom; Name of bride; By Whom Married; Date of Marriage.
