Amanuensis Monday: Robert Hampton, Bond Guarantor, 18 April 1822

Thanks to John at Transylvanian Dutch for providing a framework (and nudge) for transcribing family records, news clippings and other treasures.

This bond is one of several documents supporting a close relationship of this Hampton family with the Bayles/Bayless family. I am very interested in this Hampton family and its possible relationship to Rachel Hampton (abt 1794-bef 1880), wife of Isaac Mulkey.
