    Notes 

    • (1) Frost, Wright W., The Frosts and Related Families of Bedford County, Tennessee, Knoxville, TN: 1962, pp. 7-8:

      Ebenezer Frost, Jr., is thought to have been the fourth and last child born to Ebenezer Frost's first wife, Sarah Fairchild Frost; but either Mary or Milicent may have been born later than he. According to the inscription on his tombstone in Gravevine Cemetery, near Madisonville, Kentucky, he was born in February, 1774. His death date is not decipherable; but his inventory and appraisal were filed July 18, 1839, in Hopkins County of which Madisonville is the county seat. On April 12, 1796, in Rowan County, North Carolina, Ebenezer Frost, Jr., was licensed to marry Rebecca Bailey. The date of her birth has not been determined by the writer; but her death occurred in Hopkins County, Kentucky, August 12, 1834. Some time after their marriage, Ebenezer, Jr., and Rebecca Bailey Frost settled in Montgomery County, Tennessee, where they were living on April 19, 1825, when Ebenezer Frost, Jr., gave power of attorney to his son John B. Frost to act in Rowan County, North Carolina, in the settlement of the estate of his father, Ebenezer Frost, Sr., deceased (Rowan County Deed Book 28, p. 204). On March 29, 1860, both John B. Frost and his brother Isham Frost, of Madisonville, Hopkins County, Kentucky, granted power of attorney to H. Critz of Davie County, North Carolina, in the settlement of the estate of their half-aunt Amy Frost, who had died unmarried on April 15, 1857 (Davie County Deed Book 4, p. 373). Apparently these two sons were Ebenezer Frost, Jr.'s, only children. They were born in Montgomery County, Tennessee, about 1802 and 1805, respectively. John B. Frost married 1) a girl named Lucinda, 2) Mary Jane Hickey, and 3) Sarah Jane Spurier, according to Mrs. Helen L. Son, of Evansville, Indiana, a descendant who has assisted in the compilation of information on Ebenezer Frost, Jr., and his family. Isham Frost married Mary A. Allen, according to W. H. Perrin's History of Kentucky.
