The Reverend Lemuel Bogart was a Methodist minister in the Jones Cove, Fairgarden, and Harrisburg areas in the mid-nineteenth century. He kept a record of the marriages he officiated, which has proven invaluable given the 1856 Sevier County Courthouse fire. The following is a transcription of the marriages which he officiated, arranged in alphabetical order by the groom’s last name.
