I have a lot of information on the MILLER's in San Augustine who came from Alabama and settled in SA prior to 1845. Also information on Donald MCDONALD who was one of the early sheriff's in SA. Donald came around the 1830's.
Albert Gallatin CAMPBELL received a land grant (640 A, Class 3) for San Augustine Co. 28 Oct 1839, saying he had been in TX since 1 March 1838. Certicate issued 28 Sep 1841. He was born in SC, according to census
records, married Sarah PIERCE in 1834 in Davison Co. TN, had two children, John & Elizabeth, in TN before coming to TX. In 1840 he is listed in the Tax Rolls for San Augustine Co., but in 1850 he is listed in Nacogdoches Co. AND Anderson Co. (I believe this was one A.G. Campbell family, not two) He is on the 1860 Census of Anderson Co. TX with wife and 11 children. In 1870 they are in Anderson Co. He died 1876 Anderson Co. TX and is buried in the CAMPBELL Family Cemetery on the Elkhart Hwy.
I am hoping some other Campbells who arrived in San Augustine and Nacogdoches counties about the same time as Albert G. CAMPBELL will prove to be his siblings or other relatives.
I am researching the surnames CLEGG and WILLIAMS in San Augustine and Sabine Counties. My mother was MayBelle CLEGG, daughter of Thomas Davis CLEGG and Emma WILLIAMS. I have really run into a stumbling block on the WILLIAMS line. According to an uncle, my grandmother, Emma, was the daughter of Joe WILLIAMS and Mary? KENDRICK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
James R. NETHERY; m. Peralee MCKINNEY, 18 Apr 1850 in San Augustine Co., Tx. Can not locate them after that date. Does anyone have information on the MCKINNEY or NETHERY families in San Augustine Co.? Also, an Alex M. NETHERY m. Margaret Helena SMITH, 13 Jan. 1858.
My ancestor, William Carter ALVIS, was Justice of the Peace in San Augustine in the early 1850's. He moved because of the Moderator/Regulator situation to
Nacagdoches. I found the record of his being a Justice of the Peace at Austin. I would appreciate any assistance or information.
My ancestor John BODINE and his wife Nancy (GUNNELS) arrived at Ayish Bayou in 1825. They were from Oglethorpe County, Ga. John and Nancy had five children: Elizabeth (Lout), Oliver Hazard Perry BODINE, William R.W. BODINE, Izabelle M. BODINE and Winney Jane BODINE. John BODINE fought under Oliver Hazard Perry in the War of 1812 (hence the name for my great-something grandfather. John BODINE bought property on Ayish Bayou from Edmund Quirk. John BODINE was elected Alcalde for Ayish Bayou District in 1833. In 1834, he was elected Second Regidor for San Augustine Municipality.
The BODINE's lived in San Augustine for quite a while, Oliver Hazard Perry BODINE became father to Mary Ann (among others) who married three or four times, her last husband being John Leroy NEWTON of Marshall, Texas. His son, William Crawford NEWTON (my grandfather) was born when John Leroy was 67 years old. I am still doing research on this side of my family. I need to find out more about what they did during the Texas Revolution and the period of the Republic.
A couple of years ago, a Dr. HALEY from San Augustine contacted me about mutual family roots. I've sent a couple of snail letters but got no response. My question is: Has Dr. Haley died? I found a Mary J. HALEY listed there and suspect she may be the widow, if he is deceased. Just
thought I'd see if you knew before picking up the phone and calling her. Thanks in advance.
My ancestors were early settlers in Texas. Jesse F. BURDITT and His wife, Mildred CRAIN BURDITT arrived before 1837. 4 Jan - 8 Mar 1837 Jesse BURDITT carried the mail weekly from Nacogdoches via San Augustine, Gaines' Ferry to Ft. Jessup, LA (Jesse requested land script for amount due for services, signed Joseph ROWE (Joseph ROWE was another early settler along with his wife, Lavina BURDITT ROWE -- Joseph was Speaker of the House). Unconditional Certificate 47, Feb. 1, 1838, issued to Jesse BURDITT by San Augustine County Board of Land Commissionions, immigration date: 1833 - Amount Granted - 1 League and 1 Labor. Transfer by Jesse BURDITT of San Augustine County to Iredell D. THOMAS (967 acre survey) on Oct 7, 1841. Other members of the
family to come from Bedford County, TN included: Ambrose and Polly (Mary) BURDITT CRAIN. Jesse and Mildred subsequently moved to Travis County, buried
in Fiskville Cemetery. I have a great deal of information which I am happy to share. Also some interesting material about the Philosophical Society, etc. I may live in West Simsbury, CT but my heart's in Texas.
