Bracken County Marriage Registers


Bracken County Marriage Register Entries, 1852-1904

Files transcribed and contributed by Ken Dunlap


Prior to the 1911 standardization of public vital records in Kentucky, the family bible was where important life events were recorded. For researchers, not knowing the whereabouts of the family bible is a major obstacle to compiling a family history.

The Commonwealth of Kentucky gathered registers of births, marriages and deaths held by the local county clerk's office for a few years between 1852 and 1904. The records were compiled and eventually captured on rolls of microfilm, which may be purchased from the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA) at the KDLA Website. Registers for Bracken County were compiled only for 1852, 1854, 1855-58, 1860-61, 1875-78, 1893-94 and 1903-04. Not every event that occurred in a given year was recorded on these registers, as involved parties were not always diligent about reporting. However, for the lucky researcher, these fragmented records may contain just the documentation needed to fill a gap. Many of the microfilmed images are faint and very difficult to read.

We are indebted to Ken Dunlap for painstakingly transcribing the entries for Bracken County to simplify your research. Ken has also shared the following observations about codes and markings on the entries:

1852: The '1, 2 and 3' notations in 'Remarks' are not explained but I see those brides were not born in KY.

1855: The Xs were notations made later on the document counting those previously married, or of higher age, and persons of foreign birth. This is a deduction on my part and is not explained at all in the pages.

1857: In the later years, they switched up the notes for 'Condition' from Single or Widowed, to the number of the marriage. Widows/widowers remarrying were given 2s and there were a couple of 3rd marriages in there too. Again deduction, not explained on the pages.

Richard Hughey had his system and stuck pretty much to it for a long period while he was Court Clerk.

The marriages are mostly not consecutive, and that leads me to think they were compiled from different sources after the fact.
