Mansfield Crow – Lena Green Marriage Bond
Mansfield Crow and Lena Green are my fourth great-grandparents. I know very little about Lena other than the name of her father, Zachariah Green. Mansfield was the son of John Crow. This bond was issued in Garrard County, Kentucky.
Know all men by these presents, That we, Mansfield Crow and John Hill, are held and firmly bound unto James Garrard, Governor of Kentucky, in the just and sum of fifty pound, current money of Kentucky. The payment of which well and truly to be made, we bind ourselves, our heirs, & jointly, severally and firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals, and dated this 13th day of February 1801.
the condition of the above obligation is such that where there is a marriage shortly intended to be solemnized between the above bound Mansfield Crow and Lena Green for which a license hath issued, now, if there be no lawful cause to obstruct said marriage, then the above obligation to be void, else to remain in full force and virtue.
