Marriage Records

1792 Marriage of William Cambron and Rebecca Montgomery – Washington County

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.

William Cambron, Jonathan Riley

Witness, John Reed

November 31, 1792

This is to certify that I am willing for my daughter, Rebekah Montgomery to marry, to be married to William Cambron, with my hand, Henrietta Montgomery

Jonathan Riney, Edward Montgomery

  1. Thank you so much for what you do and share.
    I have a Riney that married into our family at one point.
    We have a relative that came fro St Charles County Maryland with the Catholic pioneers Have you ever come across a James Queen. We have never been able to find his marriage record, Death record or burial information. We have a great great grandfather who we think is his son but unable to find birth records for him or anything to tie him to parents or siblings

    Again enjoy reading your blog.

    This is a 1877 map of Marion & Washington Counties that was put together from land surveys. If you look at Springfield then to the south and sweep to the west and you will see some of your family members. B. Cambron is 1st farm south of Rose Hill.

    Please share this on your newsletter to help others to see where their families farms were. Also I have been using Google books for a year now and have found my Roney line who were called Maoloroony in 1252!!!

    Thank you, Michael Roney
