Please don't change data/dates, etc. All information here is verified by Official Records of lineage on Jesse Hall, Sons of the American Revolution.

Died in Floyd County, Kentucky (Big Mud Creek)


Masias had a brother, Reuben, born in 1776 in Virginia. Reuben married Polly Smith, probably Unisiah's sister. Reuben and his family migrated into Kentucky with Masias's clan.

Masias moved his family through Green County, Tennessee, toward Harlan County, Kentucky, around 1800. As Masias was moving his family to Kentucky, his horse threw and injured him. The family stayed on the Nolichucky River in Green County, Tennessee for a year before moving on.

According to Pearl Hall, a descendant residing in the neighborhood where Masias put down his Kentucky roots, Masias and "Eunice" settled first in West Virginia, but then came back to Kentucky to settle on Long Fork of Shelby Creek, in Floyd (later part of Pike) County.
