Mead Holt, son of Kennon Holt and other heirs named in Deed 1866

     Previous post was the marriage record for Mead Holt and Mary A. Shannon.  The following deed from Kennon Holt to his son, Joseph P. Holt located in Spencer County, Kentucky shows that Mead was indeed the son of Kennon Holt. Family lore suggests that Mead and Mary Holt died from drinking poisoned water about 1846. Their sons, Fleming and Samuel S. Holt are living with their grandparents, Kennon and Sarah Holt on the 1850 Census of Spencer County, Kentucky.
 Provisions were also made for Kennon and Sarah's granddaughters, Sarah and Mary E. Holt, children of their son, Thomas B. Holt, also deceased. Harriet Crutcher, daughter of Kennon and Sarah Holt is also named in this document.
