    Notes 

    • (1) Frost, Wright W., The Frosts and Related Families of Bedford County, Tennessee, Knoxville, TN: 1962, pp. 16-17:

      Among the early records of John Frost in the Rowan County courthouse in Salisbury, North Carolina, is that of his marriage to Rebecca Boone, daughter of John and Rebecca Boone. The date of this marriage bond was August 21, 1793, and John Wilson, probably John Frost's step-uncle, was surety. This marriage bond is the most definite refutation of a tradition among the Frosts of Flat Creek, Tennessee, that John Frost had married Sarah Boone, daughter of Jonathan and Elizabeth Dagley Boone. There is an abundance of other documentary evidence that it was Rebecca Boone, daughter of John and Rebecca Boone, who married John Frost. One of these is the record of a real estate transaction which took place on November 6, 1806, among the widow and other heirs of John Boone, deceased. An excerpt from this record follows: "Rebecca Boone, wife of John Boone, deceased, Benjamin Boone, son of deceased for himself and for Mark Whitaker and John McDaniel as attorney, Nancy Clifford, wife of Jacob Clifford, John Wilson, John Frost, James Penry, Samuel Little, heirs of said John Boone, deceased, land to John Boone, son of the deceased. . ." (Rowan County Deed Book 21, p. 489). Property rights of women in those days were assumed by their husbands upon marriage. John Frost, therefore, had the legal status of heir to property coming to his wife Rebecca Boone Frost, daughter of the deceased John Boone. Additional verification is found in the tombstone inscription in the Old Frost Burying Ground - "Rebecca Frost, Deceased in 1816." Of significance is the will made by John Boone's widow, Rebecca Boone, dated August 6, 1815, and probated in 1822, in part as follows: "I Rebecca Boone . . . give and bequeath to my beloved granddaughter, Rebecca Frost, one hundred dollars to be hers forever." (Rowan County Will Book H, p. 169). This granddaughter, of course, was John Frost's daughter who later married Alexander Haden. More than half a century later in faraway Arkansas, a monument was erected which further verifies the marriage of John Frost and Rebecca Boone. In Calhoun County, in the Camp Ground Presbyterian Church Cemetery, three miles north of Hampton, Arkansas, the marker bears this inscription: "Enoch Boone Frost, Son of John and Rebecca Frost, Born in Rowan County, North Carolina, October 15, 1806, Died March 28, 1879."
