      As you go north on 65 (about mile marker 21 or 22) you will come to a big field and then a white house on the left. As you pass the house, you will see small field and very large cane along Larkin Fork Creek. Mr Brewer lives in the white house. He should know you Brewer Family. He is retired from Huntsville Public Works.

      The Thomas Hill Spring is to the north in sec. 17 SE of SE. This is the land patented by Holden Hill in 1834. The land to the south and the west of this 40 ac. was patented by Valentine Cagle?in 1852 and 1858. Valentine also patented other land in this same area. Highway 65 runs through SE of SE of sec. 17. I live in the SW of NE of 17 on the north side of Larkin Fork and HW 65

      In the 1840 Jackson County census Holden and Richard are living next to each
      other, both are about the same age (30 to 40), in Richard's household is a
      woman in the 70-80 years of age group, is there also a Richard, son of the
      Richard you believe is the father of Holden, did he die before the 1840
