1800-1801 Marriage Returns By Rev. Thomas Hill – Pulaski County

Friday, since it was so hot and humid, instead of a cemetery Ritchey and I chose to visit two courthouses – Casey County in Liberty, and Pulaski County in Somerset.  Casey County’s courthouse was old and beautifully built in 1888.  Pulaski County boasts a new courthouse built in 1975.

I share a page of marriage returns by Rev.Thomas Hill, dated 1800-1801.  I don’t believe these are original records.  The handwriting throughout is the same and doesn’t look like it was written in 1800.  Perhaps the originals were in such bad shape they decided to write down the information.  I’m just happy we have this.  Many of the early marriage bonds were lost, some pages looked like they were nibbled by mice – and these were dated in the 1880’s.

Later more information on the two courthouses we visited.
