General Notes: Husband - Jacobus Gonzales


He was a Spaniard who bought of Marshall Stanley, about the year 1776, a farm of 230 acres, originally warranted in 1774 by Adam Coon, and bought by Stanley a year or two later. He left his property to his wife and family; the executors sold the farm; it was purchased by John Vance, and was later owned by the heirs of Elisha Bratton. Jacobus Gonzales was interred in one of the fields, under a large oak. A part of the dwelling on this farm was the original log house, entirely covered with weatherboarding; it was a good and substantial structure, and was a sort of little fortress in the troubled days of Indian depredations. It was strong, and easily defended, and became a refuge for the neighbors in case of alarms; besides, it commanded a view of three defiles, which were Indian trails. There were port-holes in the upper story.
