D.A.R., Pub. 1928, reprinted 2023, 112 pages, Index, soft cover, ISBN #978-1-63914-159-3.  Cecil County was created in 1674 from Baltimore County.  This book contains a list of approximately 4,000 marriages, arranged chronologically from July 23, 1777 to June 1, 1840. The entries give the date of the marriage, the full name of the groom, full maiden name of the bride, and the names of officiating ministers.   Due to the county's location in northeastern corner of the state, it can also be a good source for locating persons from Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania due to the common intermarriages of persons from this area.
