Nancy Thacker/ John Adkins Help needed Pike co. KY 1830
I am still trying find the parents of this couple.
*License issued September 23, 1830 by Jas. Honaker Clk. For marriage of John Adkins Jr. And Nancy Thacker, with necessary certifications being given. Bond signed by John Adkins and John Boling. Letter of consent by William Adkins, attested by (too dim to read - two names). Also, letter of consent from ______________ Thacker. (First name too dim to read and written on backs of both letters of consent) 23rd September 1830 Sworn to by Joseph Gardner, att. Jas. Honaker, Clk. Married September 24, 1830 (or September 26, 1830) by Wm. Campbell, JPPC.

**Last record of John S. Sr.
I have unable to locate death records for both John Sr. and Nancy. I know that Nancy died 1870 and 1880 between Cabell and Putnam counties.
John's second wife Delilah is found back in Cabell Co, in 1900 along with son David.
Any help with parentage of this couple is appreciated.
