Buena Vista County Marriages 1898

This list was compiled from handwritten records which were deciphered to the best of my ability. I apologize for any misspelled names-often the same name was spelled two different ways on the same certificate. The date given is the date the marriage was performed.  The records below indicate the date, names of the couple, and place they were married (if given).

1Hello, My name is Susan Brooks, I have ancestors who lived in Buena Vista County, specifically my great grandfather Benjamin F. Skeels.  I saw in the Buena Vista County Online Records under Vital Records 1898 Marriages, his second marriage to Callery, Josephine.  However his last name is misspelled, which happens a lot.  It is listed as B.F. SkeeTs, the correct spelling is SkeeLs.  After doing a lot of research myself, I know the handwriting leaves a lot to be desired and everyone does the very best they can.  Thought you might want the correct spelling and can make the correction in your records.  Your website is wonderful and has been a fantastic source of information about my other Buena Vista ancestors, the Brandvolds, we visited in June and spent a lot of time around Rembrandt where they began farming in 1868. Thank you all for your hard work.  Susan M. Brooks, MMC City Clerk, City of Golden,  911 10th Street Golden, CO 80401.   303.384.8014 phone 303.384.8001 fax (updated 10-1-05)
