    Notes 
    • RESEARCH: The Arphax publication "Family Maps of Boone County, Indiana," show Moses owned land in Sections 18 and 19, T20N, R1W. Looks like about 10 acres in 1837, 20 acres in 1835, and 80 acres in 1834. Township 20 N stradles the Clinton/Boone county line. The 10 and 20 acre plots are in Clinton County and the 80 is in Boone County. Brush Creek Cemetery, where Eppy is buried is just south of the 80 acres in Boone County.

      Moses also had two parcels of 80 acres each in Section 8, T18N, R2W ajacent to each other. His land is also bordering on that of Noah Ferguson, and John Ferguson with a David Ferguson close by. Noah's 80 acres were entered in 1831 and Moses' were in 1832 so he and Eppy may have been in Boone Co. by 1832.
