Marion and the other two who posted about Peppers:
I have a copy of the marriage bond for William Allen, who got licensed on 4 August 1781 - but he got licensed to marry Hannah Pepper.So was Frances also Hannah?Did she have a middle initial H.?
I also got bond copies of licenses for Henry to marry Betty Nelson on 27 June 1772, Henry to marry Catherine McKonkey on 14 December 1781 or 1785 or 1788(the last digit does not look like the 1 before the 7) and John Allen to marry Hannah Snelling 13 July 1786, with a note from her mother Elizabeth to grant the license to John to marry her daughter Hannah.
These were all received from the Clerk of the Court at Fauquier County, VA.
One day I am going to stumble on my widow Allen, I hope!
