1789 Marriage Records – Jefferson County, Kentucky

Included in today’s marriage records is the marriage of Major William Croghan and Lucy Clark – Lucy was the sister of George Rogers Clark, and William Clark of Lewis and Clark fame.  The Croghan home is now known as Locust Grove in Louisville, Kentucky, and is an excellent historical site to visit.  Ritchey and I usually attend their 18th Century Market Fair the last weekend in October.  May is the month for their garden show, and December a candlelight Christmas with the Croghan family.  Please go if you are able.  You might be able to have a conversation with George Rogers Clark himself!
