Jacob Heater who lived on O'Brien's fork of Salt Lick, was in the woods some distance from his home when bitten by a rattlesnake. From a memorandum found among the papers of Colonel Asa Squires, we learn that he was bitten on Friday, July 6, 1838, about eleven o'clock A. M., and that he died that night about eleven o'clock. He was buried on the following Sunday in the old Flatwoods cemetery. His remains and those of his wife were exhumed in September, 1906, sixty-eight years after the death of Mr. Heater, and fifty-three years after the death of his wife. Mr. Heater was born March 27, 1798, and his wife, Delila Riffle Heater, was born Dec. 28, 1798.
