Scioto County, Ohio, lies directly north of the Kentucky counties of Greenup and Lewis. Its marriage records begin in the year 1803. Unlike most marriage records, which usually consist of a single entry in a marriage register, Scioto County marriage records derive from a whole range of sources. This present work draws on every available record in the county courthouse--affidavits (applications for license), letters of [parental] consent, ministers’ returns, and marriage record books maintained by the county clerk.
