Freedmen's Bureau Records: Thomas P. Jackson to Mary A. Watkins, May 27, 1867

Jackson informs Watkins that Willis Stewart received a marriage license to marry another woman, and that Watkins must sue Willis for support when her child is born.

Bureau R. F & A. L
Off 4 Div 9t Sub Dist Va Mary A. Watkins

May 27/67


Willis Stewart came to Staunton and claimed a License to marry another woman. I objected but as you neglected to attend he procured it and now your only recourse is to await the birth of your child and apply to nearest magistrate for a warrant and order for him (Willis) to support the child if you can establish his liability.

Thos P Jackson
