Monroe county was formed from Mississippi Territory in 1815 and at that time it had one of the largest populations and land masses of any county in the State. This remained true until Conecuh, Wilcox, and Clarke counties were formed from it. In 1835, there was a courthouse fire that destroyed Monroe county’s records except the Orphan Court Minutes. There are about 4,000 marriages and approximately 13,000 names of individuals including bondsman & minister.
