•  Son of Revolutionary soldier Joseph Fuqua and his wife, Celia Bondurant. -

•  This entry says Fabius was one year old when his father died. That does not line up with other data. He might have been one year old when his mother died (before the family moved to Texas). The interesting part of this entry has to do with speculation about what might have happened to Fabius when his father died in 1830. Fabius would have been about six. It looks like he returned to Alabama until reaching age of majority. - Fabius Fuqua

•  He married Sally Toney Young on May 26, 1814 in Mississippi Territory (now Madison County Alabama). Sally was born in Virginia on Sept. 18, 1797 and died in Alabama in 1825. - Find A Grave

•  "The first term of the Superior Court was held on October 1, 1810 in the Madison County Courthouse, under construction, but sufficiently completed for use. The first case before the new court was that of Jonathan Wall." Silas Fuqua was on that first jury panel. This places him in Madison County early in the 1800s. - Record
