For the sum of $90, 100 acres on the Ravens Fork above Jacob Mingus included the place called Plumb orchard....Signed Benjamin Parks. Wit F (elix) Walker jur. Jacob Mingus, Ord by Walker at Jun 1809 Court. Reg 14 aug 1809.
Jesse McFarland's children list their father as being born in North Carolina in the 1880 census. It is likely that he was born in the area south of the Nolachucky River where the family seems to have moved in 1784. That land would have been part of what becomes the State of Franklin briefly, and is part of Cocke Co., Tennessee today. Back in 1784 it was part of grants of land made by the state of North Carolina.
