Confirmation of a Burned County's Records

The following letter was found in the War of 1812 pension file of David Henry, signed on 8 April 1878. The letter confirmed that the marriage records for Sevier County, Tennessee were destroyed by fire on 24 March 1856. This might be useful information for others researching Sevier County.
