The families of William Cambron and Rebecca Montgomery were among the earliest pioneers from Charles County, Maryland, just a few years before the date of this marriage. Henry Cambron emigrated to Kentucky in 1788, coming to the Cartwright’s Creek area where he bought a farm. He was accompanied by several brothers and sisters, along with their aged father, BaptisteCambron. I feel sure William Cambron was from this family. The church of Saint Rose was later built next to this land.
Know all men by these presents that we, William Cambron and Jonathan Riney, are held and firmly bound unto his Excellency, the Governor of Kentucky, in the sum of fifty pounds current money, to the payment whereof well and truly to be made to the said governor and his successors. We bind ourselves, our heir, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals and dated this 5th day of December 1792.
The condition of the above obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage shortly intended between the above bound William Cambron and Rebekah Montgonmery, for which a license has issued. Now if there be no lawful cause to obstruct the said marriage, then this obligation to be void, else to remain in full force.
