List of Marriages Contracted in El Paso County, Colorado During
We gave last year a list of marriages contracted in 1879, as we
have reason to know that list was a matter of great interest to
many of our readers and has been frequently referred to since
its publication. We have, therefore, collected from the books of
the county clerk a similar list of marriages contracted in 1880.
The following condensed table ill show the number of marriage in
each month and the total number of marriages during the year.
From the above it will be seen that November was the month
chosen by the greater number of people which to be married, and
that October and December are the next greatest favorites, each
one of these standing upon equal term, while the merry month of
May is the lowest on the list. In the first quarter of the year
there were 15 marriages, in the second only 12, while the third
shows an increase to 20 and the last quarter the report of all
amounting to 29 which would seem to disprove the statement the
poet that "In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to
thought of love."
Following is the list.
