Peggy,

The Jessamine Co KY marriages were just published in late April 2010 on the Jessamine Co KY Rootsweb site. The range we want is 1812 - 1840.

It shows that Mary (Polly) Spencer first married James Huckstep on Feb. 17, 1825. Her father Moses Spencer was the bondsman. James must have died, because Polly Huckstep then married William Bourne on June 10, 1829.

There is also a marriage of a William Bourne to a Mary Ann Patton on Dec. 7, 1825. If this is the same William, then Mary Ann must have died as well.

Do you know whether Polly and William had any children before their son William in 1833? (I'm descended from their daughter Lucy Jane.) Three years seems a long time before having a first child.
