I have a Mary Alice Bost, b. 2 Aug 1859, d. 17 May 1902, daughter of Daniel M. Bost and Mary Ann Ridenhour, however, she was married to a William Henry Beaver on 10 Feb 1880. This is the only Mary A. Bost I have in my database who appears to fit.
I have a question. Cabarrus Co. marriage bonds list a marriage bond issued to C. H. DeJernette & "Sarah J,." McClellan on 18 May 1864. Was Sarah actually Margaret, or did DeJarnette marry sisters after the death of his first wife? I noted that this bond was witnessed by Joseph S. Black, whose wife was Mary McEachern, daughter of Hector McEachern and Elizabeth Huie. Was Martissa McEachern related to his family? I know from my research that the Black, McClellan and McEachern families were very closely connected through various marriages.
