Henry County Marriage Record - Partial Transcript of a Book Page
Transcribed by Susie Martin-Rott 

I've  tried here to duplicate the look of how the register  books  for marriages in Henry County were set up, at least for the year  1878.  This is transcribed from a copy made from the microfilm of the actual register.  Many of these films  are held  at the Illinois Regional  Archives  Depository.  I  obtained theses two pages  (this would be a double page  laid side  by side on  the original) for  the nominal fee of .50  !!!
I have transcribed it exactly as it appeared to me.   Items  illegible or of serious question are marked with ? or --- indicating missing letters.

As you can see, these pages give  far more information than you might expect.  This particular sample came from  IRAD in Macomb Illinois from Microfilm  roll # 1435, 943.

A later page taken from the 1898 record book  has the same columns and information except  that nothing was filled  in  on any of the 2nd column regarding Affidavit filing.

You never know when a "bonus" will pop up on one of these sheets...as I was transcribing this one, which contains the marriage of my great grandparents, Richard Woodward and Eliza Lamb, I noted the marriage directly above theirs for Margaret France and James Bagley.  Last week I received an email from  someone working on the Whitehouse family (Eliza Lamb's mother as you will note is a Whitehouse) and a connection to them of the France family, and here all along is that marriage record right  in front of  me!!!!!!
