HUNT, NEELY posted by Jerry Murdock on Sunday, September 14, 1997

My Great-Great-Great-Great Grandfather Nathaniel E. HUNT (1783-1849) came to Sabine District from Tennessee in 1828 with his son-in-law (my 3gr Grandfather) John NEELY (c.1803-c.1850). Their families followed later and both families appear on the (1835 ?) census of Sabine. I must assume that the area in which they settled later became San Augustine County as they appear on the San Augustine records later. Nathaniel HUNT was a US boundary commissioner & is mentioned in US mortality records of 1850 as having died of "Rheum. Pains". Neely just quietly faded from the records as best I can find. He does not appear on the 1850 or any subsequent San Augustine census with his wife & mother-in-law.

HORN, JONES, NASH, POLK posted by Bob Battaglia on Friday, October 3, 1997

Is there a San Augustine history buff that is on the internet? I have a diary kept by my gg-grandfather, Amos Dickens JONES, when he came to Texas from Talladega AL in 1847. He was in the St. Augustine area from Jan to Jun of 1847 and mentions a few names. He leased some farm land from "widow HORN" and visited Lucious POLK and NASH's mill. I was just looking for some history that would fill in my story. Thanks!

BENTLEY, DAVIS, GARRETT, HAMIL, MATTHEWS posted by Betty Davis Stokes on Tuesday, October 28, 1997

Andrew HAMIL, Whitmil BENTLEY, came to Texas from Haywood Co., TN. Whitmil's first wife was Susannah MATTHEWS. She died leaving young child. Margaret HAMIL second wife. Andrew HAMIL was on the 1820 Bedford Co., TN census and 1830 census in Haywood Co. I have been transcribing deeds from Haywood Co., TN and from Haskell Co., TX where Andrew's land grant was located. (Did not live there. Heirs sold it). Andrew received 1280 acres of land, 2nd class, he arrived in San Augustine Co. Sept. 1837. Andrew thought (I can't prove it) to be buried in back of Milton GARRETT's house. Milton's wife Elizabeth, "Betty" was daughter of Andrew. Whitmil BENTLEY was born in Bertie Co., NC, buried at Cove Spring in Nacogdoches Co. with Margaret. He married in January 1838 Susannah MATTHEWS and came to Texas with the Matthews in the April 1, 1838 from Haywood Co., Tennessee. Received 640 acres. I have copy of pictures and Bible. Sidney Ancel DAVIS was a freight hauler. He had oxen. Probably more practical than horses in the mud. I have found his father to be Robert H. DAVIS, b. NC. (no will saying so, but circumstances definite).
