Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806309776, Hardcover)Blount County was erected from Knox County in 1795, just one year before Tennessee won statehood. Its marriage records date from 1795 and are recorded in a register in the county clerk's office in Maryville. The marriages listed in this work have been copied from that register. The majority of the records derive from marriage licenses and thus prove that a marriage was performed. In some cases the records derive solely from marriage bonds, which in themselves are not proof of marriage, only that a marriage was intended. Arranged in alphabetical order by the surname of the groom, the records abstracted here give the names of the bride and groom, the date of issue of the marriage bond or license, and the names of the bondsmen. Altogether 4,000 marriages are listed in this work, which also features a separate index of brides.
