Marriages of Gloucester County, Virginia, Book 1 1853-1895
The author spent about eighteen months copying Book 1 of The Marriages of Gloucester County, Virginia, for the years 1853 to 1895. The marriage records give the names and ages of the bride and groom, the occupation of the groom, race and marital status where applicable, the nativity if outside Gloucester County, the names of the parents, and often the maiden name of the mother, the date and the place the ceremony took place and the name of the pastor who performed it. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
