    Hi, I am a descendant of John French and Obedience Clay as well as Mary Clay and Ralph Stewart. I hope you don’t mind, I copied the above Marriage Bond info and souce on John French/Biddie Clay and posted it to my personal tree on my computer and I also added a note that the info was obtained from your website. If that Is not ok and/or appropriate please let me know and I will delete the information. Thanks, Tina
