[Note from ROJ: You can appreciate, as you read these, how different pastors felt it was significant to record different information. For your reference, the columns in the register are: Date, Names of Parties, Residence, Place of Birth, Occupation of Male, Age, Officiating Minister, and Remarks. In the latter column we get information such as whether or not the parties were church members. Pastor Brown felt it important to record the fee he was paid, which is a nice touch for those doing genealogical research! I have no idea what the difference was between a $3.00, a $5.00, a $7.50 and a $10.00 wedding!)

[Transcriber’s note: Thanks to those who have expressed appreciation for these; glad it is useful. I wanted to state again that I am working from a photocopy that is several years old. If you see something that you think I may have misinterpreted, drop me a note and I will take out the magnifying glass again and see if your version might be what it actually says! When I get all finished with this, I will go back to Berkeley and compare what I have typed with the original, and then post any corrections necessary. Perhaps Bill will then want to post the entire list on the Modoc co. page.]

[Perhaps you noted some corrections sent to the list by Robert Penland. I have consulted the xerox copy, and he is correct; the following changes should be made to reflect what the record book actually says: *8 Dec. 1901 marriage of Frank Hironymous and Hattie Penland: the witness is Mrs. Mary MORLEY (not MOSLEY) *5 Jan. 1902 marriage of Moda [?] Page and a Penland woman, the first name should read MAE (not MAR or MRS) *16 Jan. 1902, for the bride it reads MORLEY (not MOSLEY)

Also, Stan Harris has reported that the correct spelling of the last name of weddings 20 June 1900 and 31 Dec. 1900 should be “McConnaughy”; I think this is probably what the record book actually says, though it is difficult to read.

Thanks for these corrections; please feel free to make any more that you spot, since my interpretation of the handwriting is far from infallible!]
