Note: im Mahoney. This is her report: "Just to let you know...I have seen the document which shows the marriage of William Bolling and Phoebe Hawkins and they were married Oct. 1, <b>1788</b> not <b>1789</b>. I can understand why this would be mistaken as when you look at the original document, atthe end of the September <b>1788</b> marriages section there were two blank rows before the October 1st marriages were listed. Someone at a later date wrote in two marriages, with references to different pages inthe ledger, in these two blank slots. THESE two entries were 1789 marriages. There is no doubt, if you look at the entire document, that William and Phoeber were married in 1788.
