Relevant text regarding "Bazil Borin" on page 231 states[2]:

"The estate of Bazil Borin was administrered on by Hoseah Borin. James Hogan and Thomas McIntosh were his security for a $2,000 bon, delivered James Finney, June 7th, 1813. The appraisers were John Bradly, Abraham Price. Total appraisment was $1,101.19. A featherbed is listed at $30.00, one side of leather, $1.00, the improvement, $40.00, Jerry, a negro boy at $300.00, Clarice, a girl, $200.00, Mariah a girl, $150.00, Fannie, a girl, $100. In the account rendered against the estate as administrator is the following: 'For entering four young negroes as per receipt, $8.00, going to Tennesse to bring back three negroes belonging to the estate, $38.00, for a trip to Tennesse to examine witnesses agreeable to notice from John Bradshaw in the suit brought by me against him for Isabel a negro girl, $30.00.' The amount of whiskey was only two dolloras. Russel E. Heacock, was the attorney."

"William Dorris presents an acount of $125.00 dated April 14, 1802, a note of a little earlier date was made to Nimrod McTosh for $7.50, dated March 1802, signed Bazel Borin, Test. H. Johson. The Borin Family lived in the southern part of the county, now Pulaski."

Page 244 states:

"Susanna Borin, wife of Bazel Borin. Hoseah Borin was administrator of Bazel Borin's estate 1813. Children of Susanna were Mourning and Coleman."

Page 252 states:

"Another case was Hoseah Borin vs. Bradshaw in which the defendant proved that Basil Borin gave the negro girl in question to his daughter Mary Young. The proof was made by John Borin."

Page 252-253 states:

"Susannah Borin was allowed forty-three dollars and twenty-five cents for the case of Mourning and Coleman Borin, infant children of Basil Porin."

Page 263 states:

"The following has been referred to in the county court records, Hoseah Borin sued John Bradshaw to recover one negro woman, a slave, and one negro man and child, and a slave, Abram of the price and value of $600.00. It appears from the records these slaves belonged to Basil Borin who died in 1812, and Hoesah Borin, the administrator claimed that Bradshaw, was detainingly them fraudulently. William McDaniel, David Cotner, George James and John Carter are new names on the jury in this case, and Bradshaw was exonerated."

Are there any contemporary documents that support Charles and Mary being Bazel's parents? I don't have access to the Kerry Boren book so I don't know what sources he uses.
