“In 1866, the General Assembly passed ‘An Act Concerning Negroes and Persons of Color Or of Mixed Blood.’ This act called for blacks and those with mixed blood who had been living as husband and wife to appear before the Clerk of the County Court or a Justice of the Peace to have this fact recorded. They were expected to have their cohabitation registered before September 1, 1886, if they were to be recognized as married”—Introd., 2nd prelim. p.
