In an effort to chip away at my brick wall, I am looking for a marriage record for Lucy Wilson, daughter of George W. Wilson, to George W. Thompson.
George Washington Wilson, born about 1804-07, appears on the Owen County censuses for 1850, 1860, and 1870 in District #2, District #1, and Harmony Precinct, respectively, with his wife Adell (also Dilly and Cordelia), who was born about 1810-1813. (It's possible that Adell and Cordelia are different people.) Apparently, he often called himself G. Washington and Washington Wilson.
Lucy appears in the 1850 census, age 13. She should have been married by 1855 because she had a son in 1856, but ... It's possible that she was 18 at her marriage and would not have required parental consent. Per the 1860 census of Pike County, IL, her name was Lucy A. (Wilson) Thompson.
George Washington Thompson, the groom, was supposedly from Daviess County, KY (per his oldest daughter's death certificate). That certificate also specifies Lucy Wilson as her mother.
George Washington Wilson, father of the bride, also had children Elizabeth (1833), Matthias (1835), Sally (1839), Ambrose (1844), Oliver (1848), and Permilia (1851).
If anyone knows of a marriage bond for Lucy Wilson and George Thompson, I would appreciate the information. If anyone knows of other Washington Wilson data, I'd appreciate that also.
