    • Virginia Marriages, 1740-1850: "Drewry [sic] Senter & Polly McClure, 29 Jun 1809, Washington, VA."

      The religious ceremony may have taken place on 6 June and not been recorded at the court house until 29 June 1809. On the other hand, one or the other date may be incorrect.

      In any case, note the spelling of his given name, "Drewry," which probably represents a phonetic pronounciation. Also, note that she married under her informal name, "Polly."
