You can send a written request to the courthouse in Halifax co., VA and they will send a copy of the actual marriage bond. I have a copy of my Great Grandparents' bond from 1818 in Halifax Co., also. I found the employees at the courthouse helpful and friendly. They have someone who comes in each week to copy documents which have been requested.

Thank you so very much Sandy. It was great to see who the Bondsman were.
Her fathers name was Joseph and maybe Henry was a brother or uncle. She
named her first daughter (after the birth of two sons) Henrietta, probably
after this Henry. Funny thing though even though her fathers name was
Joseph, none of her seven children (5 boys + 2 daughters) were ever named
Thank you again Sandy.

Karen, I have a copy of the book "Halifax County, Virginia Marriage Bonds
1753 - 1854, typed by the Genealogical Society of Utah. In here I find
your BOYD marriage as listed:
GROOM BRIDE DATE BONDSMAN
BOYD, George Mary HALEY 18 Apr. 1818 Henry & Joseph HALEY
Hope this helps, Sandy
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get a marriage record that was found
through Ancestry for the year 1818? If not, do you know anyone that would
have access to them that could do a look up and write down what it says for
them? Does your library or court house have access to these records?
According to Ancestry.com it says: Virginia Marriages, 1740-1850 (database
online) Provo, UT, USA, MyFamily.com, Inc. 1999, Original data: Dodd, Jordan
R., et al..Early American Marriages; Virginia to 1850 Bountiful, UT, USA,
Precision Indexing Publishers.
This shows my ancestor George Boyd married to Mary Haley, April 18, 1818
Halifax Co., VA
I'm new to the list, so don't know if this is the right place to ask all
this. Let me know.
