National Archives Delayed Marriage Record, found in files of Elizabeth (Hobbs) Vineyard of Saline County,
Illinois application for Civil War Survivor's Land Warrant of Joshua Vineyard. (Branch Symbol RJS930, Agency Address 002173, RG. No., Stack Area 7E2, Roll 45, Compartment 22, Shelf A). R. D. Mosely, County Clerk in 1880 stated that he personally remembered the marriage of Elizabeth Hobbs to Joshua Vineyard.

Marriage Bond: “11th day of January 1836 a bond was by Joshua Vineyard and Steven [sic] Vineyard in Montgomery Coun ty Tennessee Clerk’s Office. We Joshua Vineyard & Steven Vineyard are held and firmly bound to Newton Cannon Governor in and over the State=2 0of Tennessee, for the time being in the final sum of twelve hundred and fifty dollars, for the express purpose that there shall not hereafter appear any lawful cause why Joshua Vineyard and Elizabeth Hobbs shall not be joined in the bands of Holy Matrimony. Given under our bonds and seals, in the town of Clarksville the 11th day of January 1836. Joshua Vineyard, Steven [sic] Vineyard.
"State of Tennessee, Montgomery County, I A. D. Moseley, Clerk of the County Court of said County certify that the forgoing is a true and perfect copy of Marriage bond filed in this office as the same appears on file. I further certify that I have made a diligent search in the papers for the marriage license issued on said bond but have been unable to find it. The Court House of this County having been destroyed by fire in the month of April 1878 and many of the papers in this office having been destroyed it is possible that the license may have been amongst the number. Witness my hand and Seal at office in Clarksville This October the 16th=2 01880.  R. D. Moseley Clerk."


Joshua born 1812 in Montgomery County was the s on of David and Nancy (Stephens) Vineyard. Cir. 1807, David settled on the Little West Fork Creek (Red River) in an area claimed by both Kentucky and Tennessee. This area became Tennessee in the 1859 boundary settlement. Ref. Gene Marrow, Historical Notes of Clarksville, Tennessee 1784-1864, 1934. David was mustered in 15 November 1813 in Mitchisson's Kentucky Militia to serve in the War of 1812. His unit was the only unit to serve with the 2nd Regiment of Cockes West Tennessee Militia in the Battle of New Orleans. Afterwards David fell sick and died during his trip home in Bogue Chitto, Lawence County (now Lincoln Co.) Mississippi 5 April 1815. His probate is found in Montgomery Co. Probate Will Book B, pages 375 and 436 and Court Minutes Vol 7, pages 149 and 177.
Also serving in Cockes Militia were George Vineyard (brother of David) who settled later in Dickson Co., TN and Isaiah Vineyard (son of David). Ezekiel Stephens (nephew of David) served in Captain Weakley's Co. 2nd Regiment (Cocke's) West Tennessee Militia.
