THOMPSON, Mary WILLIAMS, Uriah 21 Dec 1807 John Thompson
If the age of consent for a female was 18 and Mary was underage in 1807, then she was not born in 1788.  She would have had to have been born in 1789 or later.

THOMPSON, Mary WILLIAMS, Uriah 21 Dec 1807 24 Dec 1807 M. Wilson, JP
M. Wilson is the Justice of the Peace who conducted the marriage ceremony, not the person who posted the bond.

3.  1820 Census.  Uriah Williams not found, which is consistent with him being in Missouri because Missouri did not achieve statehood until 1821, so there was no 1820 Federal Census in Missouri.
