Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1784
Death: May 6, 1879

Frances Hughey "Fannie" was born in 1784. She married Thomas Zachariah Hinton, on 27 Aug 1808.

Thomas Zachariah Hinton was born in South Carolina on 29 Jan 1789. Thomas died on 6 Nov 1863 in Madison Co., Florida, at age 74. His body was interred at Madison Co., Florida, at Old Walker Cemetery.

Frances died on 6 May 1879 in Madison Co., Florida. She was buried in 1879 at Ebenezer United Methodist Church Cemetery, Madison Co., Florida.

Near Abbeville, S.C. stood in 1939, the old hew log house in which Fannie Hughey and Thomas Zachariah Hinton began house-keeping. It is said this was the only home ever owned by Thomas Zachariah Hinton, while a resident of South Carolina, It was interesting to note the marvelous preservation of this old building. There they lived reared their children and built for themselves the honored name they lived to enjoys.

In 1862, Thomas Z. Hinton and his family moved to Florida. Perhaps his reason for making the change was for two reasons; first, the War between the States was being prosecuted to such an extent in South Carolina as to render his activities as a farmer and carpenter hopeless and second his move was perhaps prompted by the desire to be near his children who had emmigrated to "The Land of Flowers," some years before. Be that as it mays be settled in Taylor County, Florida, just across the Madison County line and in the same vicinity of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs Jas P. Martin and Mr. and Mrs Emory Vann. Here he built his home and cleared sufficient land to cultivate some crops. By the early spring of 1864. he became disatisfied in Florida and longed to return to his old home and friends in South Carolina. Before he could complete his plans for his return he died suddenly and was buried in the Old Walker Cemetary, in the south western part of Madison County.
