Marriage Affidavits Clay County, Indiana, to 1852
Published below is a list of affidavits attesting to Clay County marriages that took place before or during 1852.
After the original marriage records were destroyed in the courthouse fire on November 30,1851,Clay County
marriages prior to that time were recorded by affidavit. Since a marriage could not be recorded unless the persons
involved arranged for it, the list published here undoubtedly does not include all Clay County marriages that
occurred by 1852. The original affidavits are recorded in a volume at the County Clerk's Office, Brazil, Indiana.
The list given here was compiled from a microfilm copy of the affidavits which is filed at the Genealogy Division,
Indiana State Library,Indianapolis.
Dates preceded by "lic." refer to the day the marriage license was issued.
All other dates given are the day of marriage. Page numbers refer to the page on which the affidavit appears in
the Clay County record book in which it is recorded.
In some of the affidavits, the date of the marriage license or of the marriage is given as "on or about" a certain day. In the
compilation printed here, each of these doubtful dates is marked by a dagger. (note: I will use the + sign)
