Adair County Marriages Performed by Rev. Henry Winfrey

Used with permission of Sandi Gorin, SCKY mailing list

This list from the late Eva Coe Peden showing marriages performed by Rev. Henry Winfrey who was an early Baptist
minister. These of course are not all the marriages - just those done by Rev. Winfrey. Names shown as transcribed by Eva; her source unknown. She sometimes pulled information from other quarterlies of the time. All of these marriages occurred in Adair Co. The original list came from the publication ôKentucky Ancestors, Vol. 5, No. 4, April 1970, page 172, et.al, published by the Kentucky Historical Society. The list was compiled by James C. Winfrey of Kansas City MO.  He took it from the original Adair County, Clerk of the County Court manuscript of all marriages, which has been microfilmed (FHL 0830575). Both transcriptions from the original contains an error in transcribing *Nicholas Pasles (Parsley or Pasley) to Parker on page 20.
