From p. 114-115 Fannin County Folks and Facts, pub.1977, article by Dorothy Nelson Fleming. "The oldest son of Asa, Hezikiah age 34 from Missouri was already married and living in separate hosehold in 1850. He married Rebecca McFarland born in Missouri but her family also lived in Fannin County. They were married September 14, 1843 in Fannin County. Their children were: James H., S.E., Jno.W. and E.G."
My information to connect Hezekiah to Asa Sr. is family notes. Hezekiah's estate settlement is in Probate Book C, pp. 25-27 and dates to January 8, 1853. Rebecca was the owner of the land they lived on. 80 acres was a gift to Rebecca, and a part of the head right of James Albert McFarland survey. Also, another 160 acres from the same head right belonged to her as the wife of Hezekiah. He purchased it from Albert McFarland fo $180. on Sept. 4, 1852.(Deed Book H, p. 235). Jackson McFarland was the administrator. This information was located by Frances Terrry Ingmire and appears in her book, Terry and Allied Families, Vol. III, pp. 178-180. The original record of the probated estate is also found in the Probate Box 3, Case #114 in Fannnin County Courthouse. It states that he died intestate on Oct. 13, 1852 with an estate of $1500. His wife, Rebecca Blankenship is requesting that the estate be administered. R.W. Lane appeared to collect a note of $18.56 in January 1854, and Albert McFarland came to collect on one plow and one covering for coffin, dated March 9, 1854. Jackson signed this document as County Commissioner.
