Thank you for the information. I have a widow's bounty application with huge discrepencies in the the marriage date. Both say Wayne Co, NC. One says Dec 1811 by _____ Sawser, JP and the other is Mar 1825 by Edward Sasser, JP. Sadly, neither of these match fairly consistant census ages. The joys of genealogy! At least you've let me know he would have been there for the 1825 date.
