I haven’t been on here much in the past couple of weeks. I have been busy finishing up my Spring cleaning, finishing up some projects around the house and getting ready for my great-aunt’s visit. Now that things are settled (and my great-aunt is here for the next week!) I can work on a few interesting tidbits of information that I found, and some that were sent to me.
Going back to the Bondurant Family, I was sent a packet of information dating back to 1797. One of the records contained in the packet is dated March 16, 1829 and is the marriage record for Joseph Bondurant and Sarah “Sally” Hunt.
I thought that I had already posted this record, but while searching for it to make sure before placing copies from my general Bondurant file into separate personal files I realized that I had not, in fact, posted it (though if I did and I am just not seeing it I apologize!).
Again, I have to thank the Bondurant family Association and it’s members for helping me obtain this information. I am forever grateful to them!
Know to all men by these presents that we Joseph Bondurant and Daniel B Hunt are held and firmly bound unto William B Giles Esquire Governor of Virginia in the sum of $150 Dollars to the payment of which we bind ourselves and each of us, our Heirs be jointly and severally firmly by these presents Sealed with our Seals and dated this 16th day March 1829.
The Condition of the above Obligation is such that whereas the above bound Joseph Bondurant hath this day obtained from the Clerk of the County Court of Franklin a license for his intermarriage with Sally Hunt of said County Now if there shall be no lawful excuse to Obstruct the said Marriage then this Obligation to be void else remains in full force & Virtue.
