About this title
allaway County was founded on November 25, 1820 from Howard and Montgomery Counties and named in honor of James Callaway, a Missouri Ranger killed by Indians during the War of 1812. Although many of the settlers to this area came from Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, and the Carolinas, the earliest settlement was made by the French at Cote Des Dessein. Daniel Boone came to the Callaway County area in 1808. Perhaps it was his tales of the area that helped to lure those settlers from Kentucky and Tennessee. It was not mandatory for a marriage to be recorded at the courthouse during this time period. Many of the marriages were performed by circuit riders and were recorded in a haphazard manner. Some marriages were never recorded or were recorded in another county. The marriages from the first two registers of Boone County, Missouri, with stated Callaway County connections have been included in this volume as well as some that appeared in area newspapers. These marriages were included to help make a more complete compilation. Information includes name of groom and maiden name of bride, date of marriage, names of officiants performing the marriage rites, and the county the groom or bride was from when that differs from Callaway County. A surname index is included. Sherida Eddlemon is author of many genealogical works on Missouri and Tennessee.
