On this date in 1844, Robert C. Burgin obtained a marriage bond in McDowell County, North Carolina. His intended bride was Henrietta Moore.
Robert’s parents were Merritt Burgin and Mary Ann Patton. His grandparents were Benjamin Burgin and Leah Mann. Ben and Leah are my 6th great-grandparents, making Robert my first cousin six times removed.
Robert and Henrietta are new people in my database; their marriage bond was my first inkling of their existence. I have no more information on them at this time.
