Phoebe (Nicks) Brashears died Dec 1811 and was buried in Guilford Co, NC, probably while on a visit to her brothers and sisters. Robert Samuel Brashears hired a grandson, Robert Samuel Gilliland, to exhume her remains, transport them to Tennessee, and re-bury her. Old Robert Samuel Brashears was either too sick or too tight to pay up, even though the grandson gave him a bill:
