Abstracted Mason County Early Marriages

These books are the first five installments of a work in progress by Kathy Hines and Gail Childress for contribution to the Mason County KyGenWeb Archives. Kathy has granted permission to present them on the Bracken County site. Mason County is a parent county of Bracken, and many early Bracken Countians married in Mason County.

The transcriptions include the names of bondsmen and other notations found on the original records. Please note that the inclusive years of the abstracted file groups do not correspond to the inclusive years of the Marriage Register volumes on file in the Mason County Clerk's office. If you send for a marriage record, provide only the bride and groom's name and the date of the entry.

1890 US Census Veterans Schedules

Stories differ about the circumstances, but the fact remains that the entire 1890 U.S. Census general population schedules were lost in a fire. The Veteran's Schedules were stored separately and thus were spared.
