Comments: This image is of a type-written index of county marriage records. I believe that there was a transcription error for Elijah Bunton and Emily Dugger. The marriage date is listed as 15 November 1896 when I believe the date should be 15 November 1846. I believe that the "4" in 1846 was mistaken for a "9".
