Index to Marriages

This database, created by Reference Department Assistant Linda McArthur, is culminated from the original index books of Montgomery County Marriages. They have been corrected to show the correct book and page numbers, and can be searched by either the name of the bride or groom. The Volume and page are given. The actual record is on microfilm in the Brown Harvey, Sr. Genealogy Room. The dates covered are 1838-1975 for the index, but the microfilm covers 1838-1963.

Vertical Files                                                                                                          

This is a listing of all personal files left in the genealogy room by people doing research. They include family information, church histories, histories of communities, events, etc. These files are listed alphabetically and, we hope, will eventually have links that will allow the researcher to see the actual records held in each folder.

The James Killebrew Collection

Mr. James Killebrew, long-time genealogy researcher, donated his entire collection of personally-compiled genealogy books to the library in 2011. He also donated an antique book case, formerly located at Clarksville’s first college, Stewart College, to house the collection. This lovely book case is located in the Brown Harvey, Sr. Genealogy Room. Many of the items refer to Christian County, KY, Mr. Killebrew’s main focus of his research. It contains court records, old school yearbooks, and personal letters Mr. Killebrew has collected over the years. This is a great asset to the genealogy department and to the local researchers, as well.

Faces of Valor
