My query regards my great grandparents, James Alexander Pittman and Nettie Earl
Thruston.  I'm trying to find information on their marriage and their families in the
Bosque County area in 1880-1890.

He was born in 1856 in Clarksville, Red River County TX to Evan Alexander Pittman
and Tobitha Pamelia Ezell.  She was born in 1874 in Hutchins, Dallas County TX to
Marshall Beverly Thruston and Rachel Marilla Campbell. They married 12/26/1888 in Bosque
County.  I went through all the census images you have provided trying to find them or their
families in Bosque County around that no avail.  (She was only 14 when they
married so I thought at least her family would be in the area in 1880 or 1890.)

I find them in 1900 in Wichita County TX and again in 1910 in Bloomington Township,
Greer County OK, where my grandfather, Forrest, was born in 1904. In about 1916 they
migrated to NM to homestead near Tatum, where they lived out the rest of their lives.

I apologize for the length of this email, but I wanted to give at least a little background.
I would very much appreciate any help you could give me or any direction you could
suggest for my quest.

Does anyone have information on the Green Powell Family? He was one of the first settlers in
Bosque County.  He settled at "Blue Hole" on Mesquite Creek, and the community became
known as Powelldale. He was a successful farmer and a large land holder. Green died in 1862
and his wife, Patsey, died in 1881. Unfortunately their graves have not been found. The Corps
of Engineers moved all graves from Powelldale Cemetery and no one knows where they are
located. Many they moved were unmarked and unknown. Would like to hear from
anyone who knows anything about this family, as they are my ancestors.
