Marriage Mark

Most often these chiseled markings appear as Roman numerals on barn beams. They were inscribed there in scribe-ruled barns as way for the joiner, or builder, to keep track of which beams went where as he moved them around. Adjacent beams would have the same number.

They were not always Roman numerals, but often a unique system of symbols worked out by an individual builder.
