? about Marriage bonds
Posted by: Lynn Pauley (ID *****6179) Date: October 01, 2013 at 16:47:17

Does anyone know if a marriage bond could be issued in one state (Kentucky) but the marriage take place in another state (New York) -- and a number of years after the issuance of the bond?

I am skeptical that this could happen, but I have an Albert A.(nkeney) Stewart who married a Dephina/Delphine Gordon in Manhattan, New York in June of 1881.

Within the past week, I ran across a marriage bond for an A. Ankiney Stewart and an Ella D. Gordon on March 12, 1878 on the Kentucky GenWeb page -- Campbell County, Newport Courthouse Marriages/Bonds transcribed from LDS Film #0532352. Campbell County is right across the Ohio River from Cincinnati where Albert Ankeney Stewart lived -- although he traveled to New York City quite a bit.

I am trying to figure out if Ella D. Gordon and Dephina/Delphine Gordon are the same. Was the marriage bond issued and then one or the other decided not to get married but then changed their minds in 1889 when I find the marriage of Albert and Dephina in Manhattan?

Or, was there an Ella D. Gordon that Albert was going to marry, did not, and then married a Dephina Gordon in New York, no relation to Ella D.?

Any suggestions, ideas, comments would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Lynn
