Reports of Marriages in Early Kerr County from non-Kerr County papers, 1890-1898

This is a selection of Kerr County marriages reported in non-Kerr County newspapers.  This is not necessarily a complete list of marriages announcements in the papers.  Kerr County has never experienced a loss of courthouse records from fire or flood.  The original records for all these marriages can be seen at the Kerr County courthouse.  Genealogy is more than birth and death dates; it is also finding the stories of our ancestors. These news accounts enhance these stories.
