Richard Ballard w/ wife Nancy
March 03, 2012 02:46PM
I am trying to see if any can help me with a marriage licence. I have a copy of one for Richard Ballard and Nancy Grayson but its dated 1812. Since there was no birth control back then, if this date is correct she would have been about 12 years old. She didn't have any children in 1830, This does not seem right to me. I can say if she was 12 when she married she probably would start having children at about 14 years old or so. Can anyone fine me any reason she would have waited until she was 30 years old to have children..Something is not right and I can't figure it out.

CAn anyone help me, please
