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.

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!
I am trying to find the marriage record of W.W.O. STANFIELD and MARY ANN RAMSDALE. They were married at the Ramsdale ferry house (owned by her father, Francis Ramsdale) which is located south of Marshall, on the Sabine river (three or four miles west of hwy 43 bridge). Thanks for any help you can provide. (Harrison Co. museum does not have this info).

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.

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).
