Here you will find a listing of early marriages in and around the area of Fenton (Fentonville).
If you are familiar with the online database called "The Dibean Marriage Index". It is a great tool for finding early marriages. However.... we have found in our research that it is incomplete. We have come across several marriages that are not listed.
We thought this would be a great item for this website, for people using the Dibean Index, that come across nothing on their ancestors. We hope that you will find them here.
The information gathered here is coming from several sources. The early local newspapers (which there were several), local marriage index's, etc. The sources are all held by the Fenton Historical Society, and most were originally transcribed by Eileen Roddy. We thought it would be a great help to make these transcriptions and our new research digital for you.
This will be an ongoing research project. As we come across new information and cannot find them elsewhere online, we will add them to the list.
