Can anyone tell me what was the legal age of consent to marry without parental permission in KY around 1830's? Still searching for parents of George BROWN married to Juliet/Julia Ann LUSH in Hardin County 1836. Thanks.

Don't know absolutely, but most of my relatives, seemed to have consent if they were under 21 years old. Pretty sure that was the rule of the time.
