Jefferson County Marriages
1838 - 1884

Due to the work of Orville and Mary Prill in the 1960s and '70s, and of Verda Baird and the Jefferson County Genealogical Society in the years since, Jefferson County has published a wealth of genealogical material. Among that material is the gathering of the marriages of Jefferson County throughout its history. It is with a great indebtedness to these people and the fine volunteers who have transcribed it from those and other sources that we offer this information to you.

Prior to 1880, Marriages were not required to be recorded in Jefferson County. Many of the Quaker Marriages (or Society of Friends) were not recorded in the county books. We have recently added Marriages from 1857 to mid-1880 to our online records. The source for this group is the Prill Books ('Jefferson County Records, Vol. 1-11'). Marriages from mid-1880 to 1959 have been collected by the Jefferson County Genealogical Society and published in books, which are available from the Iowa Genealogical Society.

Other collections of Marriages will be added as time and available resources permit. To make finding Marriages easier, we have listed the names alphabetically by surname for both the bride AND the groom. If you don't find the Marriage you're looking for, consider alternate spellings.
