When the officiating authority of a marriage is a minister or priest, try to find out what church he was affiliated with. Very often church records will contain an array of additional vital information including names of children, baptismal date(s), and date(s) of death.
Because many internet users have posted information on ministers and priests, search Yahoo (or your favorite search engine) and enter the minister's LAST NAME only. If you locate the pastor, check the web-site out carefully and e-mail the individual who posted the information. There's a good chance he or she will have church records. Leave no stone unturned.
Compiled with WPA Workers **, this straight-forward publication contains marriage records for Cheatham County, Tennessee from 1856 through 1897. Included in each entry is date application and date of marriage, name of bride/groom, and name of officiating authority.

During the Great Depression in the early 1900s, many Americans were given a "job" by the United States Government to support their family. One such "job" was transcribing early court, family, Bible, and cemetery records as well as other local records. Original versions were typed on onion skin paper with "x" number of carbon copies. Although the State Archives owns the vast majority of 'first' or typed copy, carbons have circulated for years but are now scattered. Often the typing is not the best and is difficult to read but these valuable records still constitute one of the best sources of information for Tennessee Counties. In many cases, these are all that remain of the original as many county records have been lost. WPA records are generally full text transcription: much larger in scope than an abstraction or summary.
