The oldest reference is to a marriage bond from the year 1815 between Hezekiah Bruce and Polly Bounds. This is the first year of records for Scott Co Va. The ministers return says that he married them on the 11th of July 1815. Minister was Samuel Hilton.

Jacob Wills married Nancy Bruce, 12 Dec 1839, minister R.M. Shankland.

Harvy/Harry Bruce married Elizabeth J. Bickley on 23 November 1853. Can't read ministers signature well enough to tell who it is. Names are very hard to read. Middle initial for groom could be C or I.

1 Jan 1890 J.A. Bruce, age 22,born in and currently living in Wise Co, married L.E. Horne, age 19, born in and currently living in Scott Co. Parents are D.W. & S.A. Bruce, and J.P. & Virginia Horne. J.A. is listed as a farmer and the minister is listed as R.H. Darnell.

14 Oct 1892 Hiram Fields, age 26, single, born and living in Scott Co, married Laura Bruce, 22, widowed, born in Wise Co currently living in Scott Co. His parents are William and Martha Fields, hers are not listed. Hiram is a farmer and the minister is J.C. Wells.

Hope this helps.
