Beaver Co., PA Marriages 1830 – 1873 – by Mark Welchley
Early marriage records in Beaver County and all of Western Pennsylvania are difficult to obtain. Except for a brief period in the early 1850’s, county records were not kept until 1885. Many church and magistrate records have been lost or destroyed. Newspapers, then, may preserve the only surviving record of some marriages.
The primary newspaper from the early period of Beaver County was the Beaver Argus. Marriage notices were extracted from this paper and a few scattered issues of other papers. Be advised that it is unlikely that this book represents a complete record of all marriages during this period. Many couples may not have elected to place an announcement in the newspaper of placed it in another papers.
