The Marriage Book information and names (grooms, brides, ministers, and Justices of the Peace) presented on this website are from an original transcription from a microfilm copy of Henry County, Alabama Marriage Book A (FHC film #1288501) by Jim Chumney that was completed in February 2007. A new transcription was done in order to insure the information could be provided free of copyright challenges from the other Henry County Marriage Book authors.
- Unfortunately, the tight binding of Marriage Book A caused the microfilm to cut off the last portion of a small number of names. Those names were completed with the help of the index to Marriage Book A. Note, however, that the Index is missing the pages for K's, L's, M's, and N's.
- The Marriage Book index contains numerous spelling differences with the main body of the Marriage Book. Most of the differences are inconsequential, but there are a handful of differences that are significant. These are noted in the pages for the affected brides and grooms.
- The dates of the marriages in the marriage book are not sequential. For example, the first entry is dated January 24, 1823 but the fourth entry is dated January 19, 1821. This suggests that the initial entries in Marriage Book A were copied from a number of loose-leaf marriage documents.
- The Henry County clerk’s uncapitalized a’s, e’s, i’s, and o’s are very difficult to distinguish in Henry County Marriage Book A which contributes to some minor differences among the various transcriptions.

My great,great, great, grandfather Benjamin Fillingim married Elizabeth Mary Monroe in 1825 in Henry County.
Trying to find them in 1820 Henry Co., Al. census. But, I guess 1820 census is gone.
Do you find this valuable?
