James HATCH and Eliza SEARS

Seek genealogical information about James HATCH and Eliza SEARS of Craven County (probably New Bern), NC. Their marriage bond (record # 02 158; bond # 000026935) is dated 5 November 1829 in Craven County, NC. The bondsman to this union was Alonzo T. JERKINS. This bondsman named JERKINS might have been Thomas Jerkins (11 April 1783-21 December 1855) the elder of New Bern, who was married to Grizzell SEARS JERKINS (ca. 1772-13 August 1824); or this bondsman named JERKINS may have been the son of these two, Alonzo Thomas JERKINS the younger (2 June 1807-7 April 1895), a lifelong resident of New Bern.
       An Eliza HATCH appears in the 1850 New Bern, NC, federal census (page # 28; entry # 304; enumerated 22 August 1850) as a 38WF, born in NC and possessing $1,000. In that same household are Williams SEARS (37WM clerk; born in NC), John SEARS (37WM merchant; born in NC), and Alex. SEARS (28 WM clerk; born in NC). There is no mention in this 1850 census entry of James SEARS. Mathematically, the Eliza HATCH in the 1850 Craven County, NC, federal census was born about 1812 [1850-38=1812].
       Thank you.
