Marriage Bonds, Licenses & Certificates


Henry County was formed in 1821, unfortuatly our earliest marriage record book (1821-1837) has been lost. We do have a single marriage bond from 1834 for a marriage between a Hendricks and a Butterworth. The County Archive has marriage records from 1838 thru about 1986. We have been able to recreate from other sources some marriage records before 1838.
