Gibson County, situated in the western part of Tennessee, was created in 1823. Its marriage records, preserved from 1824, are on file in the courthouse in Trenton. The records abstracted here derive from both bonds and licenses and are arranged in chronological order. Each gives the names of the bride and groom, the date of the bond or license (frequently both), and the names of the bondsmen. At least 4,000 marriage records are in this compilation, and all 10,000 persons mentioned in the records–brides, grooms, and bondsmen–are listed in the index.
