A marriage affidavit is a statement where someone appears with the couple at the courthouse and swears that both parties are of legal age and that no impediment to the marriage exists. Some affidavits were filled out by the parents/guardians or by the clerk with parents/guardians present. Some of the records also contain handwritten consents for underage grooms or brides. We have 9 affidavit books.
