My great, great, great grandparents, John Jacob CARSWELL and Laura Emma NORWOOD, arrived in San Augustine Co. from North Carolina in the latter part of 1846. Laura's parents, William C. and Eliza Le GRAND NORWOOD arrived in San Augustine from N. Carolina in July 1846. They had all come down to Texas because Eliza Le GRAND's uncle Edwin Oswald Le GRAND, as a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, had received land grants. This gave his family he opportunity to come down and settle in the new frontier.

Jane apparently died about 1858 0r 1859. I cannot find any of this family after 1860. (Hopewell may have been from Henry County, ALA. His brother, Joseph Ross ADAMS settled in Robertson County, TX.)

ADAMS posted by Jana Trent on Saturday, March 1, 1997

The ADAMS qualify for first family status in San Augustine County. Joseph Ross ADAMS, Hopewell Hugh ADAMS, and their mother, Mary ADAMS were issued Unconditional Land Certificates in Sabine County in January, 1840, citing 31 Dec 1839 as their date of immigration. They MAY have been from Henry County, ALA. Joseph and Hopewell both born in ALA and Mary born in NC. Hopewell was living in San Augustine County in 1850 and 1860. Joseph was in San Augustine in 1850 and then settled in Robertson County where he lived until he died in 1889. (Joseph was a member of the 12th Texas Cavalry-Company K, Parson's Regiment.)

ACKER, KIMBRO, MCADAMS, MCELYEA, PATTON, REED, SIDES, SMITH posted by Vickie Poe on Monday, March 3, 1997

I am looking for information about Joseph SMITH (b. 1835, TX; d. 1862- 64?, place unknown). Joseph SMITH married Mary Jane SIDES on 19 April 1855 in Cherokee County, TX. They had three daughters: Frances SMITH m. James Preston MCELYEA (25 Jan 1875, Cherokee Co.); Nancy Emeline SMITH m. Thomas Berry PATTON (28 FEB 1878, Cherokee County); and Joanna SMITH m. Bayliss ACKER, Jr. (10 April 1881, Cherokee County). I am also looking for information on another Joseph SMITH who immigrated to Texas abt. 1830, poss. from S.Carolina. This Joseph SMITH was born about 1798. He married Nancy MCADAMS (daughter of Rev. John MCADAMS)about 1833- 1834 in the Sabine District. They had a one year old son named Joseph in 1836. Joseph SMITH served in the TX. Revolutionary War under Capt. Henry REED of the San Augustine Volunteers. In 1841 Joseph SMITH patented one Bounty of land in Houston County, TX. After that there are no more records, but his wife Nancy MCADAMS SMITH remarried Lemuel KIMBRO in 1846 in Walker Co, TX. I think that Joseph SMITH, SR. was the father of Joseph SMITH, JR., but as yet, have been unable to prove it. Any information about these two would be helpful.

CAMPBELL posted by Linda Sykes on Tuesday, March 25, 1997

FIRST FAMILIES: Albert Gallatin CAMPBELL, b 1804 SC, arrived in San Augustine Co. 1 Mar 1838, according to Land Records (class 3, 640A, application dated 28 Oct 1839, certificate 28 Sep 1841) He brought his wife Sarah, children John and Elizabeth, born in TN. He is listed in the San Augustine Tax Rolls in 1840 , but by 1850 he is included in the census in Nacogdoches Co. and in Anderson Co. in 1860. He and wife Sarah had 12 children, and many of their children had large families who remained in East Texas. When Albert G. CAMPBELL came to TX he was with quite a few other Campbells, and I am determined that they are all related. I will appreciate any help in this effort.

MUCKLEROY, POOLE, REILLY, SIZEMORE, SMITH posted by John Patrick Smith on Thursday, March 27, 1997

My lineage as follows: Father - William Patrick SMITH, b San Augustine 26 Mar 1910, married to Myrtle Robbie MUCKLEROY of Nacogdoches in 1929. I was their only child. GFather - John Patrick SMITH, b San Augustine 8 Jul 1879, married to Mary Elizabeth SIZEMORE, 1908, of San Augustine. He was the County Treasurer from 1920-1929, when he died. GGFather - Patrick SMITH, b 8 Mar 1846, came to San Augustine about 1865 to be with his uncles, Bernard and Ferrell REILLY, who had come to San Augustine, 1837-1850. Patrick married Mary POOLE, adopted daughter of his uncle, Ferrell REILLY, daughter of an Amos POOL in San Augustine and they had 12 children. Patrick donated the cemetery land of the Smith/Catholic cemetery to the Catholic Church. Bernard & Ferrell REILLY - Irish born who came to San Augustine. Bernard was a shoemaker, never married, but at time of death in 1873, had acquired some 20,000 acres of land throughout Texas that took the probate court of San Augustine some twelve years to settle. Records are in the SA courthouse. I have been working on the family history for the past year and have been to San Augustine several times to gather information at the court house. It is a shame that Arlan Hays of the San Augustine Sentinel won't make his old newspapers available to someone for the historical information that is buried there.

posted by John Patrick Smith on Saturday, March 29, 1997

Information needed on newspapers that were published in San Augustine and where copies of those papers might be? Would the Steen Library at SFA, Nacogdoches, have copies of SA newspapers going back into the 1800's??
