Marriage

The marriage bond was filed in (Augusta) Richmond County Ga, which is on the South Carolina border. The paper states that Rebecca James is an orphan at the time of the marriage in 1793.

Shared note

Evidently Priscilla was Rebecca's sister. Evan James gave a security for her wedding to Richard Burch in Richmond Co Ga in 1799. Richard Burch's family moved westward along with Jonathan (and Rebecca) Magee family to Adams Co MS about 1802. They appeared in the tax and census lists with Jonathan in Adams and Franklin Co MS and moved to St Tammany Parish with the Magees and Evan James by 1815.
