1b.  Christian County, Kentucky.  Marriage Bonds, 1818-1841, White.  [LDS Film No. 0465562.]  This is a film of the original book, not a transcription.  The number is the marriage number, not the page number.   The third name is most likely the person who posted the bond.   (Extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen I appear to have misread George's middle inital as an "M," but I no longer have the film available to recheck it.):

Thompson, Sarah and George W. Jones 28 Jan 1825 John Thompson
If Sarah was underage (under 18) in 1825, then she was born no earlier than 1807.

Jenny A. F. Thompson 18 F       "
John W. Thompson  2 M       "
Jenny A.F. THOMPSON is said to actually be Jenny Ann Frances JONES, our subject's daughter.  I would assume Jenny was Spencer's wife and that John W. their son, except that marriage records show Spencer THOMPSON married Elizabeth E. WEST in 1845 or '46.  Listed next to Jenny's maternal grandparents, John & Elizabeth (SPENCER) THOMPSON

A.  The George Jones on p. 209 could be a son of George and Sarah.  The George Jones on p. 205 is old enough to be the George W. Jones who married Sarah Thompson, but could be him only if Sarah died and he remarried.
