Associated Reformed Presbyterian Death And Marriage Notices
Volume II: 1866-1888
The Associate Reformed Presbyterians of the South sponsored two periodicals before the Civil War. Although endorsed by the Associate Reformed Synod of the South, both were published by individual ministers without any financial support from the synod. The Christian Magazine of the South, The Erskine Miscellany (later The Due West Telescope) regularly carried death and marriage notices until their respective terminations. Includes notices of people who lived in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Illinois, Missouri, and Texas. Marriage notices are especially important for South Carolina since they were not required until 1911. In addition, the death notices are important because of the reconstruction of the area after the Civil War and the fact that many could not afford tombstones.
