John "Cane Hoe" Ferrell earned his nickname "Cane Hoe" because he would hoe more wild cane out of a corn crop than any two men.

Coffee Co., Tennessee, court documents, dated October 5, 1882, concerning the disposition of the estates of John and Miley Ferrell. These documents attest to the ownership of the shares of the estate of "Cane Hoe," John and Miley Ferrell. The significance of this document established August 5, 1882, as the date of Miley's death. The petition of the heirs of John Ferrell to sell their deceased father's land and divide the proceeds among themselves, reflecting a controversy between Enoch Ferrell, son of John and Miley, the plaintiff in the case, and his siblings, the defendants....Apparently, this case sparked by a dispute over the disposition of the estate of Miley Ferrell, John's widow, after her death.

The principle significance of the court documents, list by name all thirteen children of John and Miley and also, substantiates the heirs of John and Miley and whom they married.
