      Marriage in New Brunswick Laws Act

      https://familysearch.org/learn/wiki/en/New_Brunswick_Church_Records
      1791 marriage act New Brunswick

      http://webhome.idirect.com/~cpwalsh/nb/vitalstats.htm
      The marriage act of 1791 authorized five types of officials to perform marriages:

      1. Church of England clergy (all cases).
      2. Justices of the Peace (if no Church of England clergy were available).
      3. Church of Scotland clergy (if both parties to the marriage were members of the Church of Scotland).
      4. Roman Catholic clergy (if both parties were Catholic).
      5. Quaker officials (if both parties were Quaker).

      http://genealogyfirst.ca/resources/primary-sources/parish/marriage
      In 1791 the first New Brunswick act to regulate marriage and divorce was passed. An Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian or Quaker clergyman could marry a man and woman over the age of 21, or with parental consent if younger, after banns were published in the parish for three consecutive weeks. In cases where the banns were not published or if the clergyman did not know both parties involved, a marriage license and bond was required. When the marriage legislation was amended in 1834, Baptist and Methodist clergy received the right to perform marriages.

      http://www.familyhistoryalive.com/New-Brunswick-Vital-Records--Births-Marriages-Deaths.html
      In 1812, a new Act seeking to improve marriage registration was passed. In addition to requiring all clergymen performing marriages (except for Quakers), as well as the Justices of the Peace, to send certificates of marriage to the county Clerk of the Peace, it set out detailed requirements with respect to the contents of the marriage certificates and the format of the County Marriage Register.

      The Burnett County clerk was nice enough to check the death records of that county to see if there was one there for Sarah. I spelled both names for her and she checked the computer database and the other files, but could not find one. I am leery of her search, since she she did not seem to understand the importance of looking under different spellings. Another problem that often happens in indexing (electronic or otherwise) is the "Mc" names are often indexed before or after all the Ms or in the manner "Mc Clelland," the space being a problem

      Another volunteer checked all of Wisconsin many names and spellings to no avail.

      Vickie Storlie checked Minnesota and didn't find anything.
