Andover Marriage Intentions filed in Rumford, 1801 to 1869

Many Andover residents were married in nearby towns and their marriages were not recorded in the Andover Vital Records. Also, it appears that some births, deaths and marriages in the 19th century were simply not recorded at all. Therefore, we have gone to secondary sources to supplement the gaps in the town's official records.

These marriage intentions were reported in History of Rumford, Oxford County, Maine From its First Settlement in 1779 to the Present Time, by William B. Lapham, Augusta: Press of the Maine Farmer, 1890. They were converted to electronic format by Cheryl Kelso, host of Oxford County, ME USGENWEB project. We thank Cheryl for letting us use them on the Andover Web page. Please be advised that these marriage intentions are secondary sources. We suggest that you use them as a guide to locate the primary sources.
