Edythe Rucker Whitley. Hardbound, blue cloth with gilt lettering on front and spine, published in 1982, as new, Indexed, 139 pages. According to the publisher: Shelby County, Tennessee was erected November 24, 1819 from Hardin County and its records of marriages commenced almost at once. It is believed that the original marriage records were destroyed. However, those that are given here were copied from a marriage register kept at the courthouse in Memphis, the county seat. They were numbered as found in the register and those on the opening pages are out of sequence. While this work is not an exact copy of the register, it does have all the marriages found there--about 5,000! Arranged in a single numerical sequence, the records abstracted give the names of the bride and groom, the issue date of the bond or license, and the marriage date. All 10,000 brides and grooms are listed in the index. [6338-C]
