Mr. Aaron Frederic, a native of Tennessee but for a few years before the Civil War broke out lived in Howell County, Mo., and lived awhile on Crooked Creek in Marion County, Ark., says that his parents, Hezzikiah and Susan Frederic, lived to be very old before they passed to the great beyond. "My father" said he "died in 1890 at the age of 100 years. My mother died in 1894 at the age of 95 years. They both lie buried in a graveyard at the head of Osage Creek in Newton County, Ark."
