a. Note:   Asa Todd was born in 1817, son to Jemima Todd and grandson of Benjamin Todd b 1759. A family tradition had earlier reported that Asa Todd was the brother to Walker Todd b 1822 and Jefferson Todd b 1814, and that Walker’s mother (and therefore Asa's) was Elizabeth. However, census records indicate that Asa Todd was son of Jemima Todd who married Alexander Espy two decades after Asa’s birth and then married Hollis Cooper in 1859. A recently discovered court ordered land sale listed the living children of Benjamin Todd b 1759 and included Jemima Espy in that list. Though we don’t know Asa Todd’s father, he indicated that in the 1880 and 1900 census that his father was born in Tennessee. He moved to Cannon County about 1842 and settled near where his step-father Alexander Espy had gotten a grant in the 1830s along Dug Hollow of Brawley's Fork.
