Wedding Wednesday: NICHOLAS JONES and MARTHA "Patsy" MOORE Aug 8, 1782 Granville Co NC

This is a copy of the original  Granville Co NC marriage bond record for my great X5 grandparents NICHOLAS JONES b abt 1758 VA? NC? who married MARTHA "PATSY" MOORE on Aug 8, 1782.

MARTHA "PATSY" MOORE was the daughter of ARTHUR MOORE b 1735-1740 and ELIZABETH STANLEY.

NICHOLAS and MARTHA (MOORE) JONES did not stay in Granville Co NC for long, but shortly after their marriage moved on to Orange/Caswell Co NC (1782-1784), Madison Co KY(1789-1800), Pulaski Co KY (1800-1810), Rutherford Co TN (1810-1820) and Fayetteville, Lincoln Co TN (1820-1823). I have not been able to ascertain whether or not NICHOLAS JONES died in Lincoln Co TN, but he does disappear off records  by about 1823.

MARTHA's parents, ARTHUR MOORE & ELIZABETH STANLEY also lived the same places, often next door to NICHOLAS & MARTHA, according to census-- although ARTHUR died 1821 in Franklin Co TN.

The above marriage bond shows both the signature of NICHOLAS JONES and ARTHUR MOORE.

Have a great day!

Betty, nice record to have. You don't see too many of them in that time frame. You must have been excited to see it. Good going.

My 3rd Great Grandparents, Robert Moore Nicholson and Jane Landers were married by Lindsey Hargrove who married Elizabeth Moore, Arthur's daughter. That wedding took place in Lawrence Co Alabama in 1825. My 3rd Great Grandfather Robert Moore Nicholson had a brother Arthur Nicholson, his grandson William married Jesse James half sister Sarah Louisa Samuel (Clay Co Missouri).
