From "History of the Western Reserve," by Harriet Taylor Upton, H. G. Cutler, Editor of the Lewis Publishing Company; and a staff of Leading Citizens... [The Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago/New York, 1910], Vol. 1, p. 537:

FIRST MARRIAGES

Ashtabula -- Catherine Braddock and Beverly Star.

Andover -- Polly Carpenter and Artemus Smith.

Conneaut -- Aaron Wright and Anna Montgomery.

Colebrook -- Cleora Phillips and Asahael Canfield.

Dorset -- Mr. Griffin of Morgan and "widow of Abitha Sutliff." Women were surely such relics in early days that their own names are not used even after their husbands died.

Hartsgrove -- Fred Alderman and Ann Burgess, 1828.

Harpersfield -- William Harper and Miss Robinson, 1808.

Jefferson -- Jonathan Warner and Nancy Frithy, 1807.

Lenox -- Sallie Randall and Nicholas Miller, 1810.

New Lyme -- Susan Peck and Calvin Knowlton.

Morgan -- J. B. Battell and Lydia P. Gellett, 1803.

Monroe -- George Ferguson and Maria Harrington.

Plymouth -- Julia Hubbard and Walker Richmond.

Richmond -- Nicholas Knapp and Elvira Rockwell.

Rome -- Jerusha Crowell and Erastus Flower.

Sheffield -- Miss Mendall and Major Moore, 1817.

Trumbull -- Ezra and Laura Griffin?

Wayne -- Philemia Brockway and Samuel Fobes.

Williamsfield -- Samuel Tuttle and Lois Leonard, 1812.

Windsor -- Jonathan Higley and Kesiah Griswold, 1806.

Fair Warning: Transcribed as is [transcription errors are possible]. Some of the marriages listed may not be factual but just what the "leading citizens" said. Published histories and genealogies should not be considered primary documentation.
