I know very little about the Berryman and Landress families, but the Booker and Brown families were in Washington County early on in the years of the county, and remained there for many years. In one place it says the Berryman’s moved to Barren County.
Know all men by these presents that we, William Berryman and William B. Booker, are held and firmly bound unto the Commonwealth of Kentucky, in the just and full sum of Fifty Pounds, current money, to the payment of which well and truly to be made to the said Commonwealth, we bind ourselves, our heirs, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals, and dated this 26th day of April 1820. The condition of the above obligation is such, that whereas, there is a marriage shortly intended between the above bound William Berryman and Polly Landress, daughter of John Landress, deceased, for which a license has 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 in law.
William Berryman, William B. Booker
