      John C. Hare Sr. was born about 1763 possibly in Cumberland County, NC the son of John Hare and Margaret [maiden name unknown] Hare-Kosht. He married Elizabeth Owen. No information is available to show when or where, or Elizabeth's ancestry. We do not know for sure that John had a middle initial. He was John Sr. and had a son John C. Jr. Therefore, he must have had the same name as Junior. The C. probably stood for Calhoun which was a prominent middle name in the family, and may be the maiden name of Margaret Hare-Kosht, John's mother.

      John and Elizabeth had eight children all born in North Carolina: John C. Hare Jr. born about 1785; Henry Bryan Hare Sr. (our ancestor) born about 1787; Elizabeth Hare born about 1789; Owen Hare born about 1791; Terricy Lydia Hare born about 1792; Mary Catherine Hare born about 1793; Peter Hare Sr. born about 1797; and Euphrania Frances Hare born about 1807.

      John and Elizabeth moved their family to Wilcox County Alabama soon after the treaty of Fort Jackson, Alabama, August 9, 1814 which opened up the land formerly occupied by the Creek Indian Nation. The exact year could not be established but John and John Jr. died about 1823, nine years after the treaty. Since both died at the same time it appears a disease like malaria or yellow fever may have taken them. Who knows maybe Indians killed them or worse yet they may have killed each other.

      ESTATE OF JOHN HARE SR.
      ORPHANS COURT SECOND MONDAY IN APRIL 1823

      (April 14, 1823)

      Present the Hn. Edwin L. Harris, Esq. Judge County Court on application of Mark Morgan for Letters of Administration on the estate of John C. Hare Sr. deceased and it having made appear to the satisfaction of the court that the widow of the said John Hare Sr. deceased is unwilling to take upon herself the administration of the said estate and the said Morgan being one of the legal heirs (in right of his wife Euphrania Hare) of said estate, it is therefore ordered by the court that letters of administration on the said estate of John Hare Sr. be granted unto Mark Morgan.

      It is ordered by the court that Mark Morgan give bond and security in the amount of two thousand dollars as administrator of said estate and that John A. Evans and Wm. H. Plummer be accepted for his security.

      WRITER'S NOTE: Since this man is listed as John Hare Sr. and since he had a son John C. who was a junior, it is assumed that the senior John was John C. Hare Sr. and that his first son was John C. Hare Jr. For some reason, Mark Morgan (husband of Euphrania Hare) was removed as administrator of the estate and was replaced by Euphrania's brother Peter Hare, John Hare's son, four years after the proceedings began.
