James Parker and Catherine Burton 04 January 1852

Source Information: Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 2008.  Original data: Tennessee State Marriages, 1780-2002. Nashville, TN, USA: Tennessee State Library and Archives. Microfilm.

James Parker and Catherine Burton were married 04 January 1852 in DeKalb County, Tennessee by the Justice of the Peace.  Currently, I do not know when James was born, nor the names of his parents.  Catherine was 16 years old at the time of her marriage to James.  The above marriage record does not state any information regarding parental consent, so I need to find out what was the legal age to marry without consent in Tennessee in 1852.

By virtue of the above License, I have this day solemnized the rites of Matrimony between the parties therein named in presence of respectable witnesses given under my hand this 4th day of January 1852. John B Scott, J.P. for DeKalb County
