Alfred Thompson, my great great grandfather, is the bondsman, not the groom, for this marriage of his brother, Benjamin. On the back side of the bond, at the NC State Archives, Benjamin Thompson's name appears.
Alfred Thompson married Elmina R. Crowell in May 1836 with EP Whitfield as bondsman. On the back of the bond, Alfred's name appears. Somehow an error occured, and Alfred is mistakenly listed as the groom of Hannah.
Family lore has Benjamin moving to Texas shortly after his marriage, otherwise I am sure Benjamin would have been Alfred's bondsman since their father passed in 1830.
