"North and South Carolina Marriage Records From the Earliest Colonial Days to the Civil War." William Montgomery Clemens. Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc 1975. Some give date, some only names and county. Not complete record, some records were destroyed or lost. Marriage records prior to the 1900's are scarce for North (or South) Carolina. Until then, marriage licenses or bonds were not necessarily required by law, and many families opted to simply have banns read in order to meet the public notice requirement. Historians have generally relied on surviving church, court and private records (including submissions to publications like genealogical magazines) when compiling their resource materials, but they are far from inclusive. Family researchers should not be discouraged, therefore, by an inability to locate a surviving record. DN1, SE
