Claim Your Ancestor #29: Marriage Bond. Literally, cash.

Students,
I found this marriage bond you might be interested in.  Dennis and James Thigpen are giving $500 bond for the marriage of Lewry/Lewcy Edwards and Dennis Thigpen.  

Where is Lewcy's dad on this bond?? Is she an orphan?  A former servant?
You should research this....
