No, this is an index of marriages thru 1899 that I got over a year or two. I bought copies of pages of the index from the Register of Deeds and entered the data manually in a spreadsheet. :-)

The bond was used up to 1867-1868 and showed only the names, bond date, who took out the bond or cosigned it, public official signing the bond, and book and page number. The bond didn't show the parents either.

In 1868 marriages began under license (certificate) and showed parents, ages, where they lived, etc. But many times the data shows parents unknown, or only a first name, etc. Also can't recall ever seeing the mother's maiden name.
