  • Notes 
    • Amos DEATHERAGE and his wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin HOWARD, both
      parents having been natives of Kentucky, and afterwards among the first settlers of Howard county, this State. Amos DEATHERAGE, the father, was born in March, 1782, and his wife, Elizabeth, in March, 1790. In 1817, they
      immigrated to Howard county, Colonel Bird DEATHERAGE, the subject of this sketch, then being but six years old. In 1820 the family settled in section 5, of this township, where they lived until 1824, when they settled in section 7, on the farm now known as "Elkin place." Subsequently, in 1836, they settled
      permanently on the farm where the parents continued to live until their deaths, which occurred, the father's September 24, 1840, and the mother's November 24, 1858. Amos DEATHERAGE, the father, was prominently identified
      with the early improvement of the county, and was looked upon as among the first of the brave-hearted, enterprising pioneers who cleared away the wilderness and made the country a fitting home for an intelligent and prosperous prople. Mrs. DEATHERAGE was a Howard - need more be said? In her were the gentleness and nobility of nature that have distinguished that family
      from the time of Thomas the hero of Flodden to the present day. As a wife and mother, she was tender and devoted; and as a lady she was the soul of gentleness and refinement.
