    Notes 
    • JD Sutton's History of Braxton County - 1919:

      The Squires Family
      Elizabeth was born March 30, 1746.

      Asa Squires, son of Elizabeth Squires, was born May 12, 1785. Sarah Cartright Eastip was born Oct. 6, 1785. Asa Squires and Sarah C. Eastip were married in Frederictown, Md., June 27, 1803. They were natives of Fauquier County, Va. They came to what is now Braxton county, and settled on Salt Lick, Mary 20, 1807.

      Their children were Eliza Eastip, Mary Taylor, Elvira Shophia, Mariah Biggs, Lucinda Ann, Catherine Letchworth, Matilda Cartright, Thomas Hanson, Sarah Jane, Wm. Cranville, Daniel Stephen.

      Elizabeth Squires, the mother of Asa and Eliza Squires, rode horseback from Fauquier County, Va., to Salt Lick, arriving at Asa Squires' on Dec. 14, 1822. She was nineteen days on the road, being in her seventy-seventh year. She died March 8, 1840, and was buried in the old Squires cemetery on Salt Lick.
    • Elijah Squires, son of Sarah Squires of Farquar county, Va., and brother of Col. Asa Squires, was born in Farquar county in 1787, and came to Braxton county, Va., about the year 1870-8. He married a Miss Ertin of Farquar. By this marriage he had three children, Taylor, Asa and William. He settled in Flatwoods on the land now owned by Wm. Hutchison where he remained until his death. He married for his second wife, Elizabeth Gibson, daughter of Nicholas Gibson. She was born in 1803, and died in 1896. To this union were born eleven children, as follows: Eliza, Susan, Mary, James, Edgar, Sarah, Eligah H., Margaret, Lydia, Frank F., and Betty. Eligah Squires was said to be a noble Christian man whose influence still lives. He owned slaves, but set them free. He was a member of the M. P. church, and mainly through his influence and by his means, the Stone run church was erected and a church society built up.
