Notes for Asa Heathcock
Alfred's second son Asa first appears in the Texas records on November 14, 1860 when he married Elizabeth Callihan in Bee County. The Calliham family had previously lived in St Landry Parish, LA.121

He enlisted in the Confederate Army 13 February 1862 at Yorktown and served under Captain Cupples in the 24th Regimental Texas Cavalry until his capture at Fort Hindman in Arkansas on 11 January 1863. He was paroled 31 January 1863. After the end of the war, Asa and his family appear to have lived in Atascosa County until they moved to Wilson County in the early 1870s.

Asa and his wife Betty are buried in the Heathcock plot in the Stockdale cemetery. Asa's stone bears the inscription: Asa Heathcock; 22 July 1837-3 September 1908; Pvt. 24 Regt Texas Cav; Civil War. His wife's stone is inscribed: Betty C. Heathcock, 1846-1911. Also buried in this family plot are Clifford Heathcock, 10 April 1914-29 November 1937; son William Edward Heathcock, 25 October 1869-8 July 1946; and daughter-in-law Mary A. Heathcock, 25 June 1874-3 April 1939; and a J. P. Bartlett, Pvt Co B 23 Regt Texas Cavalry, Confederate States Army. The latter individual is believed to have been Mary A. Heathcock's brother. Clifford Heathcock was killed in a gunfight with Deputy Sheriff C. F. Fuller. The fight resulted from a disagreement over a grand jury investigation into the burning of some buildings in Sutherland Springs.
Notes for Elizabeth (Spouse 1)
Asa's wife, Mrs. Bettie Heathcock, filed a Widow's Application for Pension after Asa's death on 3 September 1908. Her application essentially verifies his service record. In the application, reference is made to File No. 7388, presumably Asa's pension application file. At the time of the Widow's application, Mrs. Heathcock lived at 202 Sharer Street, San Antonio.
