1822 Marriage Bond and Consent For William Montgomery and Mary Yates

William Peter Montgomery and Mary Yates are my 3rd great-grandparents.  They married January 21, 1822, and lived only eleven years together before William died during the cholera epidemic of 1833.  The couple had six children – Charles W., Martha E., Henry L., Mary Rebecca, Frances Edwina and William Peter Montgomery, my second great-grandfather, who was born two months after his father died.

Henrietta Yates, mother of Mary, was a Cambron before marriage to John Yates.  She had a brother, Raphael Cambron, who is probably the bondsman.  Her husband, John Yates, was deceased by this date.

Know all men by these presents that we, William Montgomery and Raphael Cambron, 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 paid to the said commonwealth.  We bind ourselves, our heirs, jointly and severally, firmly by these presents, sealed with our seals and dated this 21st day of January 1822.

The condition of the above obligation is such that whereas there is a marriage shortly intended between the above bound William Montgomery and Miss Mary Yates, daughter of Henrietta Yates, 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.

John Yates 1816 Will – Washington County

John Yates is my 4th great-grandfather.  I am unsure about his parentage.  He married Henrietta Cambron,, daughter of Henry Cambron and Margaret Harbin, November 6, 1798, in Washington County.  John’s will was written only three weeks before probate; evidently he knew he was on death’s door.

In the name of God, Amen.  I, John Yates, of Washington County and state of Kentucky, being infirm of body, but of perfect and sound memory, thanks be to God for it, and calling to mind the uncertainty of this life, knowing that it is appointed for all men once to die, do make and constitute this my last will and testament in the manner and form following.

First, I recommend my soul into the

hands of God that gave it me, hoping that the merits of my Blessed Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, to receive the same again at the general resurrection, and my body to the earth, to be buried in decent form according to the direction of my Executrix or Executor, hereafter named.

Second.  After my just debts are paid I will and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Henrietta, all my estate, real and personal, during her natural life on condition hereafter named.  It is my will she should school my children, those that have not any schooling, to have two years, and whenever any of my children arrives at age 21 or marries, to have one of my estate, one horse for use, one cow and bed furniture and after the death of my wife, the residue of my estate, real and personal, to be equally divided amongst all my children.  And lastly, I do hereby nominate and appoint Henrietta, my wife, and Henry Fenwick, Executrix and Executor to this my last will and testament, revoking all other wills made by me, given under my hand and seal this twenty-fourth day of April in the year one thousand eight hundred and sixteen.

Peter Carrico’s 1764 Will – Charles County Maryland

You have no idea how happy I am to have a copy of this will!  Peter Carrico is my 5th great-grandfather.  My mother was a Carrico and her line goes directly back to Peter through her father.   Through her mother’s line she is also descended from Peter Carrico – Martha Ann Carrico (a descendant of Peter) married William Peter Montgomery in 1862, making Peter Carrico also my 6th great-grandfather.

Notice the large name of the deceased above the will – and the county written at the top of the page.  Very easy to find a particular will.
