In one of the letters she talks about King Hutson.
"King Hutson paid 3900 for that piece of land after Ans Mathis had bought a strip next to him for 500 dollars, making that piece cost 4400. King Huston let Samps, Henry and Levi Hutson have it."
Well, that's was about as clear as mud but as I got further into the history, names started popping up. I still can't identify Ans Mathis but the Mathis family does appear on the census so I'll have to make a concentrated effort to track him down. Samps, Henry and Levi are King's children.
