In Reply to: Re: Madison Co. KY CAPERTON or CARPENTER by Jadean Day of 251

Jadean, I am not sure if Terry or anyone has contacted you regarding a Thomas Caperton's marriage to a Nellie Hendren. Some time ago apparently the record was misread and it has led people in many different directions regarding this alleged marriage. The fact is that Nellie Hendren, dau. of Nimrod Hendren, actually married Thomas Carpenter, son of Edward and Sarah (possibly Bepper or Pepper) Carpenter, bond date 1 Jun. 1813 Madison Co., KY, Return date 3 Jun. 1813, the same date given for her marriage to Thomas Caperton (but Caperton is not mentioned). Consent for this marriage was given by Nimrod Hendren, father of the bride, and by Charles Murphy, step-father of the groom. Charles Murphy had married in 1795, Sarah, the widow of Edward Carpenter and mother of Thomas Carpenter. The original records are precise about Carpenter being the husband of Nellie Hendren. By the 1920 Census of Madison Co., KY Thomas Carpenter has 2 males under 10, he age 26-45; 1 female under 10, and his wife, age 16-26. It is believed that Thomas and Nellie actually removed to MO before the 1830 census, but no absolute proof. They just are not in Madison Co. for the 1830 census.
