My 3rd great aunt, Mary "Polly" Wilkinson married William McEntire February 23,1823 in Rutherford County NC. It seems that William was the brother of your Nancy McEntire Thompson Wolfe. You haven't been able to find a marriage bond for Nancy and a Thompson? I am having the same problems with my Wilkinsons. It must be that they had the banns read at church rather than getting a marriage bond. Mary's parents were Anne Nowlin and Thomas Wilkinson. I have yet to find their marriage record. Have you look at the marriage records themselves? I am wondering if the marriage records are indeed there but not easy to read. Also, I am looking for where the Wilkinsons and William McEntire's family moved to around 1824. William's son Thomas was born in TN in 1829 then daughter Kesiah was born in KY in 1833. Do you know if any of your McEntires went to TN and KY around 1824 and 1830?
