* Caution: There are two marriage bonds in Virginia like this: one here in Chesterfield for Nathan and Mary Ann Mayo and another in Fluvanna for Nathaniel and Mary Mayo separated by a year or so, but regrettably the similarity in names has caused most compilers of marriages for Virginia to combine these bonds into one record. This is not so, they were two different couples. In addition this has caused many researchers to cross link these two distinct families. Mary and Mary Ann (Marianne) were cousins. Nathan was from a south side Anderson family and Nathaniel from a north side Anderson family.
