Mildred & John were intestate. administered first by Mildred 2nd by Wm. E. Ferguson. May 7th 1873. Counter filed by her son Owen Henry Bagby. I did not find a will or probate record on Mildred. Mildred & John were married Sept 23- 1813 by Thomas Henderson who was in 1813 the superintendent of Choctaw Academy. Great Crossing & preacher at Stamping Ground Baptist Church. In 1814 they had a Family Bible made by Wm. W. Woodward of Philadelphia, PA. I do not know if any descendants have this bible. It may be the only document with the name of John's father listed. Mildred does not have a marker for her grave in Roanoke Cemetery. Everyone says she is their but why is she not on Randolph/Howard CO. death index & lists. She died in the home of her daughter. Last census, (1870) has her living in home place with one daughter & her son Jacob M. Bagby.
