Hamilton County, Tennessee Marriage Book 2, 1864-1874


Hamilton County, located in lower east Tennessee is adjacent to the Georgia and Alabama State line. During the Civil War most of the city of Chattanooga was controlled first by the Confederates and then by the Federal troops. Few buildings survived and almost none of the trees were left as the troops needed firewood and shelter. The county seat was at Harrison, up river from Chattanooga and so following the war, the records were begun again. These marriage records begin at the end of the war and continue during reconstruction. They give the bare minimum for marriages, who, when and by whom.
