Washington County Biography of:
"Fielding HASH, one of the very prominent farmers of the township, was born in Sangamon County, Illinois, December 29, 1828, and is the fourth of twelve children, ten now living, born to Alvin and Esther (DRAKE) HASH. The father was born in North Carolina, and partly attained his growth in that state. Later he moved to Tennessee, was married there and after remaining in this State until 1836, moved to Arkansas and settled in what is now Washington County. He was a farmer, and was one of the pioneer settlers of the county: was justice of the peace for several years, and was a prominent and respected gentleman. He died about 1842. The mother was born in Tennessee, and died in Washington County, Arkansas in 1878. Their son, Fielding, was but eight years old when his parents moved to Washington County. He remained under the parental roof and assisted his mother on the farm until twenty three years of age or until his marriage to Miss Nancy C. COUNTS, daughter of George COUNTS, who was one of the early settlers of Madison County, Arkansas. Mrs. HASH was born June 29, 1833, and by her marriage became the mother of nine children: Lindsey L. (wife of A. A. LANGHAM), Martha A. (wife of Thomas MAYS), Ezra J. W., John D., Edna P. (wife of Willis BOYD), Susan B., Conrad A., Mary E. and George H. Mr. and Mrs. HASH are members of the Christian Church; he is a Republican in his political views, and is an honorable, straightforward citizen. During the late unpleasantness between the North and South, Mr. HASH served in the Kansas Militia, and was in the fight at Westport." (Goodspeed's History of Washington County...)
