I thought that if I posted this here more researchers would see it and correct their trees. This is a transcription of James and Naomi Raines Morgan's marriage record. The surety is shown as JAMES MORGAN SENR. It seems very clear that this is James's father. From Wayne County Marriages & Vital Records of Wayne Co., KY. Vol. 2, Pg 61:

Morgan, James Junr. and Alcy 'Amy' Raines. Surety, James Morgan Senr.
Bond dated 25 November 1807. Minister return missing.
Note: 'this is to sartify all clarkes that gave true free privilege
for James Morgan and my dauter Amey Raines to have lisons and
to git mared I say given under hand Amoses Ranes State of Canetuck
PILLACATH CONTEY - proved by the oath of James Morgan,
15 October 1807'

I hope this will help clear up any doubts you have and will get all of us on the same page with our research.
