  • Notes 
    • "In his will written Jan. 30, 1833 and recorded June 25, 1833, Joseph Dant names all his children, mentions his plantation, a mare, a slave named Nace, and leaves five dollars to Holy Cross and ten dollars for Masses for the repose of his soul. He makes his son, John Dant, his executor. This will was witnessed by: William Smock, Jefferson C. Peak, and William Peterson. This was the terrible year of the Asiatic Cholera Epedemic and I suspect it was the cause of his demise. His will can be found in the Washington County, KY Clerk's Office in Springfield, KY in Will Book 'E', page 200." [Find a Grave page for Joseph Dant, citation details below]
