    • Though not the oldest, Sarah was the first of the Back Creek children to marry. 26 Feb 1800 Hezekiah on behalf of Keziah **** and himself gave consent for this daughter's marriage to Augustine Smith, 1775-1857, a neighbor. Since the consent was given, Sarah may not have been of legal age to marry.

      Augustine with his father, John Smith, gave bond to the amount of one hundred and fifty dollars to assure that the marriage would take place. Hezekiah not only signed the bond with his bold signature, ***** but had written out the contract and consent in his own hand and since Augustine and his father could only make their marks, which, as required by law was witnessed by a person who could sign his own name. In this case it was a Caleb Tate, Jr. Thomas Hall, Sarah's brother, also witnessed for the Halls and he could sign his name.
