This straight-forward publication contains marriage bonds for Smith, County Tennessee during 1838 as well as from 1845 to 1854. The information was compiled by WPA** workers in the 30's and 40's.

Records are listed by original page number, entry number, groom's/bride's name, officiating authority, date of license, and date of return.

** WPA Workers
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.
