Book Review: "Rockbridge County Virginia Marriages 1778-1850" with Last Name Index A-L

The following is a summary of the last name index, A-L, of "Rockbridge County Virginia Marriages 1778-1850" by Dorthie and Edwin Kirkpatrick, 443 pages, index, figures, map. Rockbridge County's creation in 1778 from portions of Augusta and Botetourt counties was part of a flurry of new county organizations and older county subdivisions during the Revolutionary period. Despite the war, the frontier was moving inexorably westward, and the new county of Rockbridge represented an area now more densely settled and requiring its own polity. A total of 4,785 marriages have been extracted directly from courthouse records as well as from newspaper and other published sources; these references include parents' name, bondsmen, ministers' names and their denominations. This is a soft cover reprint of a 1985 original, printed by New Papyrus Co. of Athens, Georgia.

FYI, the book you would get contains all letters A-Z but I broke them up here into two posts so they would not look so long.

Here are two sample entries from the book:
  • "Moore James & Mary Kirkpatrick 19 Jan 1797; d John min - Samuel Houston, Presbyterian"
  • "Adair Elizabeth & Samuel Snodgrass 22 Nov 1792; d James min - Samuel Houston, Presbyterian"
The following is a list of names made from the surname frequency index at the front of the book:
