The estate documents prove the marriage of Elizabeth Huffman to Henry Back. The Huffman Bible and the English Catechism prove Elizabeth Back who died after 1830 in Harlan County Kentucky was the wife of Henry Back of Culpeper County Virginia.

    Elizabeth and her three sons Henry, John, and Lewis listed together. Elizabeth's 100 acre tract was on the Poor Fork, entered by Andrew Cope. Cope did not give her a deed until 1825 indicating she probably bought it as a contract for deed. Elizabeth may have been there earlier but several tax lists are missing or unreadable.

    06 Feb 1785 is Henry Back Junior's date of birth, recorded in the catechism book that served as his familyís Bible for recording births and deaths, currently in the archives of the Breathitt County Library, Jackson, Kentucky.

    18 June 1785 is Aaronís date of birth, recorded on his tombstone.

    Aaron was born just a little over four months after Henry and therefore cannot share the same mother. Henry is the son of Henry Back and Elizabeth Huffman Back. Aaron is the son of John Back and Margaret Huffman Back. They were double first cousins, not brothers. Aaron is not listed with his sisters on the deed disposing of his motherís land because he was just 17 years old at the time.
