Marriages found in the "Miscellaneous Records" volumes in the Monroe County Courthouse


These marriages records were found in the Monroe County (NY) Courthouse in a set of volumes called "Miscellaneous Records." The reasons that they were in those volumes is not known for sure. As many of the records are recorded years after the fact, it is thought that a good share were recorded as proof for military pensions.

The recorded day is the date that the marriage was entered into the Court records.
