MAR.LIC:WESTERFIELD, David to MOSELEY, Elizabeth, Daviess Co., Ky, 1838

Submission # 22 by Barbara Westerfield Hilyerd--June 29, 1998

The following information is from photocopies made approximately 30 years
ago by Annas B. Westerfield at the Daviess Co., KY. courthouse. Although
some county records have recently been moved to the state archives at
Frankfort, KY, I believe that the marriage books and the file boxes
containing the original marriage records are still in the storage room in
the basement of the county courthouse.

>From Mar Bk. A, p. 85 which is a chronological listing of marriages with
horizontal lines separating the couples' listings. At the left is a column
which contains the *bond* dates for each couple, then a second column
contains the names of the couples, and a third column contains the
minister's statement which usually gives the actual marriage date.
Apparently,the first two columns were filled in when the license was
obtained, then the third column was filled in when the minister returned
the license to the clerk's office. It appears to be in the handwriting of
the deputy clerk.

"19th Feby 1838"/"David Westerfield to Elizabeth Moseley"/"On the 20th
[underlined] of Feby 1838 I joined in wedlock the within named couple
John Pinkston M. M. E. C."

>From a photocopy of the original marriage record. The file box is not
identified, but I believe the boxes have the years listed on the front.[The
copy shows the foldlines and holes of the original.]

On the outside fold:
"David Westerfield
Miss Moseley
19th Feby 1838"
Then, written sideways, immediately under the above date:
"on the 20th of Feb
1838 I Joined in
wedlock the within named Couple
John Pinkston
M. M.E.C."

Inside is the following:
"Kentucky Daviess County Sct

of Daviess certify that bond and security has been executed in my office
agreeably to Law for a License to issue for the mariage of David
