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