This volume is a comprehensive compilation of marriage references in Cecil County, Maryland from 1825 through 1850. Marriage information was gleaned from license books, newspapers (Cecil Whig, Cecil Gazette, Cecil Republican, Cecil Democrat and Farmer's Journal, Elkton Press, Midland Journal, Cecil Courier, The Aegis, Easton Star, Kent News, Baltimore American, Baltimore Sun, and Delaware Gazette), county court records, tombstone inscriptions, death records, church registers, bible records, census records, military records, selected family histories and other sources as cited within the text. This volume is so much more than just a listing of names and dates. In many instances the reader may find years of birth and death, names of parents, children, siblings, other relationships, ministers, places of residence and migration, occupations, military ranks, subsequent marriages after 1850, places of burial, and more, including information about African Americans.
