    Notes 
    • "I was married to Miss Martha Roult, the 20th day of January, 1829, in Hocking County, Ohio, on her father's farm, which was near my father's farm. We had nine children, Francis Marion, Minerva Jane, Charles Wesley, Thomas James, John Milton, Susan Ruth, Levi Roult, Ellen and Margaret.

      You are the last of your father's house, I am old and will soon pass away. I was born the 4th day of March, 1803, at our Ancestral home in Virginia and hence will be 84 on the 4th day of March, next."
