    Simpson County Kentucky was created by a Legislative Act of 28 January 1819 from Logan, Warren, and Allen Counties. Simpson County was named in honor of Captain John Simpson, an early Indian fighter who fought at Fallen Timber and was one of many Kentucky victims at River Raisin. The county seat is Franklin.

    Most of the county records (deeds, wills, and marriages) were destroyed when the court house burned on 17 May 1882. However many of the Circuit Court records survived and were stored for many years in the attic of the present courthouse. These order books have been microfilmed and are on file at the Kentucky State Archives in Frankfort, KY. The loose records have been indexed and along with the original order books are on file at the Simpson County Archives in Franklin, KY. In fact, all records which are available for genealogical/historical research can be found at the Simpson County Archives at 206 North College St, Franklin, KY

    Absolom STRATTON

    Places of residence: Amherst Co. Va, Simpson Co. Ky
    Occupation: Farmer
    Ky Tax list Simpson Co. 1819-1847. Absolom is alive 1830. Deceased by 17 Sept 1831.
    1825 Court records in Simpson Co. Ky show Absolom and Celia. Court doc destroyed.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. ABSOLOM STRATTON came from Virginia and settled in Kentucky in the early part of the nineteenth century. In 1781 he was a Revolutionary soldier, and the war records at Richmond show that he was granted a pension. Among his descendants the belief is current that he was born in New Jersey; that he came from Virginia to Kentucky in company with five brothers, four of whom stopped in northern Kentucky, while one went on to Tennessee.

    Absolom settled in Simpson County (orginally Warren Co). He married a Miss Ennis, in Virginia, on 16 Dec 1805. After her death he married Celia (Graham) Logan, in Kentucky, in 1822. He was a farmer, and worked also at the carpenter's trade. He belonged to the Baptist church. If he was brought up a Quaker he must have lost his birthright in the society when he became a soldier. He died in Simpson County, about 1831. Three years after his death his widow married Zachariah Morris, a Baptist minister, and was again left a widow in 1848. Later she went to Texas and died at the home of her son, in the spring of 1867, aged about 72 years.

      Note: Early Allen County Marriage Records 1815-1889

      The marriages listed here are from the books "Allen County Kentucky Marriage Records 1815-1865" by Miss Ona Willoughby (dec'd) c.1938, "Marriages, Allen County Kentucky 1866-1889" by Erskins Garrison (dec'd), and "Allen County KY Vital Statistics 1852-1861" by Elizabeth Rabold & Mary Price (both dec'd). There are probably transcription errors due to illegible and faded writing, burned information, etc.

      In October 1902, the Allen County Courthouse suffered many record losses from a fire. The Marriage Certificates, Bonds, and Licenses did not survive. What did survive was the Marriage Register where the young couple's names were listed, and the minister signed his "return" after the ceremony was performed. Nothing more than what is listed here is available at the courthouse for the years indicated. There may be errors in transcribing these records. However, missing information is truly missing and not an indication of a transcription question. The original pages are charred, and in many cases badly burned. Blank information cannot be recovered from the original. However, if you have information to share, I will notate that beside the marriage column: mailto:allencountyky@yahoo.com

      This is an alphabetical list for grooms and brides. Some of these files are large and will take a minute to load, so please be patient!!
