I am interested in the Mayberry family of Bedford county. There has been a lot of information gathered by numerous persons. One of the oddities is that Frederick Mayberry (sometimes known as Jr) is listed as having married Priscilla Yokum (Yoakum) in 1792 in Bedford CO, VA. At that time, he would have been 35 years of age. Has anyone ever run across any documentation of a marriage prior to this one?
