Marriages of Caroline County, Virginia, 1777-1853 - Therese A. Fisher. Like much of the South during the Civil War, Caroline County was burned and many of its colonial records were destroyed or lost. The author has drawn from several sources to fill in as many gaps as possible and compile this book of marriage records. Records contain names of bride and groom; date of marriage; minister and/or sometimes other family members in attendance or bondsman (typically for the bride). There is also a list of ministers, providing their denominations and years of service, which was derived from the actual marriage records, newspaper accounts or church histories (when available).
