Manda McFarland is listed in the 1880 census of Stockdale, TX, as a widow with children named Asberry (aged 9, 17 and 20) and a 1-year-old son named John McFarland. They were listed as neibhbors of Asa & Elizabeth Heathcock and Douglas and Louisa Van Dorn. This would make sense since Amanda Heathcock was the sister of Asa Heathcock (Asa was child #2 and Amanda was child #4). Louisa Van Dorn was one of Asa’s daughters.

There is some confusion about Amanda Heathcock’s domestic situation. She was the mother of the three Asberry children and the mother of six McFarland children.
