over Catfish, before the Revolutionary War. He had five sons, Archie, Samuel, Henry, John and Absalom,
and one daughter, Nancy; the mother of these was a Dozier. Archie and Samuel went West. Henry married
three times; first Miss Mourning Brown; his second wife was Nancy Brown and this third wife was Milley Bryant.
The children of John Gaque mentioned are Mrs. Foxworth, Mrs. Harrel and Ann who was the mother of the late
Jessie C Rowell's wife. Absalom married twice. First to a Miss Dozier and second wife was
a Miss Davis.
