William Nourse – Elizabeth Jameson Marriage Return

Scan_Pic1681Mercer County Court

These are to license and permit you to join together in the Holy State of matrimony William Nourse and Elizabeth Jameson according to the rites and ceremonies of your Church and for so doing this shall be your sufficient warrant.  Given under my hand this thirtieth day of January one thousand seven hundred & 90.  Hugh McElroy

To any minister of the gospel legally authorized to solemnize the rite of marriage.

(Notice that the name of Thomas Allin, County Clerk for Mercer County, has been scratched through.  He was county clerk until 1833.  Perhaps he was away at this time.)
