Nancy Crislip's Marriage Bond

Harrison County Marriage Bonds

Her husband, Jacob Ours, was born 29 December 1796, in Hardy County, (West) Virginia. He was the eighth of 13 children born to Sigmon and Mary (Simon) Ours.

Jacob Ours is believed to have died at some time prior to 1821, about the same time that his father-in-law, Jacob Christlieb, wrote his last will and testament. It is evident from the will that he wished to provide for his grandson, William Ours. It is not known if Jacob Christlieb ever obtained guardianship of William, as he had James O’Conner, the only child of his deceased daughter, Catherine.

Nancy died on 28 September 1877. Her age at the time of death was 87 years, 11 months. A notation on her death record gave “Nancy” as the name of her mother. Her mother, Nancy Singer Christlieb died ca. 1824. Barbour County Death Record Book 1, p. 53.
