Some of the entries include deeds, wills and obituaries, historical notes, biographical sketches and other pertinent information important to the gathering and maintenance of family records. The beginning of this work provides a chronological listing of all the marriages solemnized by Robt. Boyte C. Howell from 1827- January 1868. Also included is a summary of the history of Mt. Zion Church for 100 years (1832-1932). The marriage records of Knox County, TN (1792-1849), which originally appeared in the Tennessee Historical Magazine in 1920, are contained herein. These marriage record entries list the names of the husband and bride and the date they were married. Marriage Bonds for the town of Lebanon in Wilson County, TN are listed by W. P. Bouton, and cover the years from 1802-1819. The marriage entries are in chronological order, and provide the names of husband, wife, pastor, and sureties/witnesses.
