DEPOSITION: A. Hare, born March 7, 1805, live within 3 miles of Gainesboro on waters of Doe Creek. Know parties & land, knew old man William Lock, Robert White and James W. Lock - all are dead. William Lock claimed banks above mouth of Doe Creek & between Doe Creek & Roaring River, tried to sell his land to me and Peter G. Cox. James W. Lock claimed land after his father and sister died. The old man died first. His sister never married and died without children. William Lock had but two children, the girl's name was Polly Ann. I heard some talk of other children, but never knew them. He had only two by his wife that I knew of. There was but two living when the old man William Lock died.

I am the same A. Hare who gave deposition in the case of James Eaton & wife against J. W. Lock. I am the same A. Hare that sold a tract to E. S. Cason near mouth of Doe Creek.

Do not know exactly where the Lock tracts and the Bob White or Nathan Montgomery land joined. Only ones ever claimed banks was old Billy [William] Lock and Jim [James W.] Lock. Was 1829 or 1830 when William Lock said banks belonged to him. Bob White built a mill about 40 or 50 yards above the mouth of Doe Creek, there came a freshet and washed it away after a year or so. 4 Aug 1893. s/s A. Hare

ANSWER: William H. Young to Bill of Complaint of Z. M. Young. Complainant bought land when Leroy B. Settle's heirs were in possession. At the time M. A. C. Eaton conveyed the land to Complainant, she did not have actual possession. s/s Gardenhire & Anderson and Geo H. Morgan, Sols. for Compt

DEPOSITION: Catharine F. More, will soon be age 50. Live in Dist 1, north side of Cumberland River. I am a daughter of James W. Lock and a sister of M. A. C. Williams. I knew James Eaton in his lifetime, he was husband of M. A. C. Lock, now M. A. C. Williams. My father owned the banks from the mouth of Roaring River to mouth of Doe Creek, it went to M. A. C. Eaton when it was divided and she sold to Dr. Young. I never lived more than one mile from the banks. I heard M. A. C. Eaton, then M. A. C. Frost, [who is] now M. A. C.

Lock etals & Newton Moore & wife recorded Minute Docket I [or J], pages 492 & 493. Decree of Chancery recorded Minute Docket C, pages 219, 220 & 221, Feby term 1859]

Question: Were you not gone from the country for 7 years prior to your lease of land in 1878, and had you not just returned when you took the lease?

Answer: No sir. I had been back six years before I took the lease. I went West and staid [sic] about 6 years, came back here & stayed 2 years and then went to Carthage, Tenn and staid 4 years before I took the lease. The six years I was in the West I did not know who was in possession of the land. The four years in Carthage, I was here frequently. 15 March 1893. s/s M. F. Young

DEPOSITION: James Cason, know land & parties. Old man Scanland and I came by about 1869 or 1870, road was changed. Can fix the time by my marriage. Married a daughter of old man Scanland's in February 1869. Rented from Z. M. Young in fall of 18[?]79 and moved there in January 1880 at mouth of Roaring River. s/s J. W. Cason

DEPOSITION: Henry Riley, know parties. Known land since 1851. Cultivated in 1862 for Zach Vanhooser. Don't know who he rented from. Understand it belonged to Dr. Nathan Montgomery. Before that, I had worked there from William Hall & for John Roberts, who kept a hotel here in town. Understand they rented from Montgomery.

A. W. DeWitt had the land in his possession a little after the war. Jerry Kirk col fenced it & cultivated it, understand under DeWitt. Did not know William Lock in his lifetime, did know J. W. Lock. 15 March 1893. s/s Henry Riley

DEPOSITION: Henry Riley, stated he had known M. A. C. Williams since she was a little girl. Boarded with her father James W. Lock in 1851 along when I first came here. [On recall 19 March 1893]. s/s Henry Riley

DEPOSITION: A. Pharris, known land upwards of 60 years, lived near all that time. Bank opposite W. H. Young has washed away some 25 or 30 yards. Road ran 62 years ago where it now runs. The timber was deadened & there was a turnip patch out next to the creek on the highest point of that knoll. Bill Smith, a half brother of old Tommy cleared it.

Question: Do you recall the great freshet of 1847?

Answer: The fence was carried away, fell in, and was washed away and the road was moved back in the field. I remember because I had a child born the 12 [no month given] and I had to take him out the 14 in a canoe.

Another freshet April 1849 cut the road. Best of my recollection Nathan Montgomery farmed it in 1833 or 1834. Alex Geddings rented it one year from Montgomery.

Known M. A. C. Williams since she was born, good character. George Flynn, think not as good as some. I think a white man who will quit the Anglo Saxon race and want to educate the African race inferior to the Anglo Saxon race is not entitled to full faith and credit with good citizens. 15 May 1893. s/s A. Pharris

DEPOSITION: R. N. M. Stafford, knew James W. Lock in lifetime. We was over on Aaron's branch talking. John Dock & his wife and Jim Pryor were present. Was about 1867 at the house where Frank Kelly is now selling... think we were in there getting a drink. Labon Loftis was there selling liquor.

Question: What time was it you went to the penitentiary for killing S. S. Gray and how long did you stay there?

Answer: Sentenced at November term of the Court and staid to the first of March following. Was 1867 or 1868.

Question: Would you state whether or not you in fact killed [Sam S.] Gray?

Answer: I think I did not. s/s R. N. M. Stafford
