Gary.  In this case, James M. THOMPSON gave permission for an underage Sarah to marry; he is most likely her father, but could be her uncle or older brother, etc.

Sanders THOMPSON is said to have given bond for the marriage to McCoy HICKS (if this was in the book, I failed to write it down.)

Comment:

A.  The discrepancies between these dates have no logical explanation.  Surely some of the above dates must have been transcribed incorrectly, so the original records need to be consulted.  The Christian County Genealogical Society in Hopkinsville, KY, can be contacted to see if they have the original permission slip and the original bond (they do for some early marriages).  These are separate, loose pieces of paper, as opposed to the county clerk's marriage books.  (If you are unfamiliar with the different types of 19th-century marriage records, please see my description of them.)
