Book Review: "Giles County, Virginia Marriages 1806-1850" with Last Name Index A-Z

The following is a summary of the last name index of John Vogt and T. William Kethley, Jr.'s "Giles County, Virginia Marriages 1806-1850", 147 pages, indices, figure, map. Giles County was established in 1806 from Montgomery County and portions of Monroe and Tazewell counties. Parts of Wythe, Monroe, Mercer, Craig and Tazewell were added later. The 1,498 marriage records in this volume are particularly complete and contain both ministers' returns and surety bonds. Accompanying data in most records includes minister's name, bondsman, and occasionally parents and relatives' names. This is a soft cover reprint of a 1985 original, printed by New Papyrus Co. of Athens, Georgia.

Where's the wilmore family tree because im looking for my family

I went to Amazon, which says that the book is out of print. I also checked ebay, but no one is selling the book there either. When/where did you get your copy? There is a marriage I would like to look up- George W. Vaughn and Henrietta. I don't have a date for the marriage, and I'm not even certain they were married in Giles Co. I just know that they had a son named Richard who was born in Giles Co. in 1842. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Try this site, they are the publisher and you can probably buy it directly from them. The owners name is John Vogt and he is a good guy to work with. I have bought from him many times.
