This book is an index of marriage records found in the Probate Court of Highland County located in Hillsboro. It lists the names of the brides and grooms, date of marriage, and the name of the person that performed the marriage.
If consent was given (underage groom or bride), the consenting party may be named.
Names of parents, birthplaces and ages of the bride and groom, were not listed on Ohio marriage records until 1899.
The pages in the original record books for part of 1816 to the end of 1820 are blank and the marriage returns are lost. The index for this time period was used to obtain the names of the brides and grooms and marriage dates.
