100 Years of Washington County Marriages CD

Washington County, Kentucky, Marriages – December 23rd

Sorry it has taken a little while to get back to the contest we had – I asked that you guess which month and day had the most marriages during the 100 year period of 1792-1892 in Washington County, Kentucky.  There were some great guesses, but no one guessed the correct date.  There were 50 marriages on December 23rd.  Could it be that with family would be visiting for Christmas, that date was popular since relatives were already gathered?  Tom Gibertini guessed December 24th – the closest to the actual date – so Tom, send me your address and I’ll send you a copy of 100 Years of Washington County Marriages!  Congratulations!

Looking at the chart above you can see December 23rd was the day with the most marriages, and June 25th and July 30th were tied for the least at 7 each.  January was the month with most marriages and June the month with least!

After Saturday’s post I’ve already had several requests for CDs.  If you are interested in purchasing one send a check for $17.50 to Phyllis Brown, 449 Pope Avenue, Harrodsburg, Kentucky 40330.

And now, those 50 marriages on December 23rd!
