Marriage and Death Notices from the Charleston, South Carolina Mercury, 1822-1832


This daily newspaper began publication in 1822. While the notices from some Charleston newspapers have been published, the Mercury notices have been neglected. Besides the regular marriage and death notices, this volume includes funeral notices, legal notices from burned record districts such as Colleton and Beaufort, and the occasional coroner's reports published in this newspaper. Notices are not limited to Charleston or to South Carolina.
