What is the source for William Caples' DOB of 27 January 1766? Also, can you clarify his date of marriage to Elizabeth Green in Baltimore County, MD? Was 21 August 1793 the date of marriage? I know that the license was dated 21 August 1793, and that the marriage was reported the minister, the Rev. Dr. Bend of St. Paul's Parish. However, I have not been able to find a record of the marriage in the book, Records of St. Paul's Parish, Vol. 1, by B. & M. Reamy, 1988, nor in Maryland Marriages, 1778-1800, by R. Barnes, 1978. It appears that the first marriage license returns by Rev. Bend were filed by him on 27 Nov. 1793. Have you been able to find a record of the marriage? Many of "marriage dates" given in the Caples book appear to be license dates, instead.
