Thornton, James Madison & Sarah Catherine Hicks. James Phillip Thornton attest the groom's age. Abraham Hiskett attests bride's age. bm. 22 Jun 1833. Shel.

All these marriages took place in a place I believe was called Shellburne Parish in Leesburg, Loudoun County, Virginia. I believe the Thorntons are related but I have to research the names to be sure.
