In Reply to: Marriages in Old Town by Joseph McDonald of 538

Old Town was part of the Moravian settlement of Wachovia in this period, so most marriages there were probably recorded by the church rather than in civil records. You can check those with the Moravian Archives in Salem.

For civil records, this would have been part of Rowan County until 1770, Surry County from 1770-1789, and Stokes County from 1789-1849. Marriage bonds exist for all those counties and can be searched on, at the state archives in Raleigh, and in published abstracts.
