      MARRIAGE BOND of H. Thomas and E. Hammond 5th day of January 1820
      Know all Men by These Presents, that we, HENRY THOMAS and JOHN SMITH, are held firmly bound into Jos. McMinn Esq., Governor of the State of Tennessee, and successors in office, in the sum of Twelve Hundred and Fifty Dollars to be void on condition there be no lawful cause to obstruct a marriage from being solemnized in the County of Knox between HENRY THOMAS and ELIZABETH HAMMOMD

      Signed HENRY THOMAS (seal) JOHN SMITH (seal)

      MARRIAGE LICENSE FOR H. THOMAS and E. HAMMOND

      I, Charles McClung, Clerk of the Pleas and Quarter Sessions of the County of Knox, aforesaid by virture of the power in me vested by law, do license you or either of you, to celebrate the rites of Matrimony between HENRY THOMAS and ELIZABETH HAMMOND as uniting them as HUSBAND and WIFE IN Office of Knoxville, Tennessee.

      Charles McClung, by his Deputy.


      1840 Bledsoe County, Tennessee Census
      District 8, pg 49 of Ancestry.com

      Henry Thomas 30 & under 40 (This age does not fit Henry?)
      1 male under 5
      1 male 15 & under 20
      2 females under 5
      1 female 5 & under 10
      2 females 10 & under 15
      1 female 20 & under 30 (This age does not fit Elizabeth?)

      I am not sure if this is Henry and Elizabeth in the 1840 census in Bledsoe Co., or not for sure. The ages do not seem to fit in for the family from the information we see in the 1850 census.

      Missing child from 1850 census is Adam Thomas born October 1, 1823 in Bledsoe Co., TN. From 1880 census information on Adam and going by the birth dates of his children, I believe he was already living in Texas by the time of the 1850 census.
