Ben F. Bickerstaff of Titus Co., Texas

I am currently conducting research on Benjamin F. Bickerstaff of Titus County, Texas (1850s-1860s). He is primarily identified as a Texas outlaw during Reconstruction, but outside of a few incidents, no one has ever chronicled his life story. I hope to do so. I have collected a considerable amount of information about him, but I have almost nothing on his family life.

What I do know:

1) I know his father was Seaborn Bickerstaff (mother may have been Francis).
2) I know he had at least two brothers--J. B. "Black" and (Seaborn, Jr.?) and I think two or three sisters.
3) He lived in Titus County (Gray Rock).
4) He fought in the Civil War.
5) He was gunned down in the streets of Alvarado, Texas (1869?)
6) He was married but I do not know his wife's name or if he had children

If anyone has any information about B. F. Bickerstaff and his family, I would be interested in learning more.

I would be happy to share any information that I have on him in return.
