Cofield-Loyd Marriage License and Bond

Click on the marriage license for a better look. John R. Cofield and Dollie Loyd applied for a marriage license on September 7, 1899 - which was on a Thursday that year. They were married by J. R. Holliday at Dollie's parents' home, Isham and Rachel Loyd, who lived in the Bull Mountain, or Newberg, community in Marion County, Alabama. Looks like they married on a Sunday. The marriage bond was obtained by John R. Cofield and R. N. Terrell (likely Robert N. Terrell, who later served as circuit court clerk for Marion County. Looks like the marriage bond cost a whopping 50 cents.

If you use the inflation calculator from BLS, 0.50 in 1913 is worth $10.92 in 2009. (1913 is as far back as they have statistics available).
