Richard Dumas,
.
Please help me find a Dumas of Texas researcher.
.
"J.D. Dumas", really the Lewis D. Dumas in the 1860 Grayson Co TX cen (P.O. Sherman) who has 3 sons who served in the CSA. Also notice that the father was quite wealthy.
.
I think one of these rich Dumas kids organized (maybe an ego trip) the Doomas Company (purposely misspelled) and yes, he recruited a bunch of kids.
.
Most of the men in this Doomas' Company were quite young and
.
Jackson, Alex, Doomas’ Co
Merrill, Rumsey L, Doomas’ Co. "Ramsey"
Merrill, W., Doomas’ Co.
Peebles, J.W, Doomas’ Co.
Renner, Geo, Doomas’ Co.
Wilhoit, Henry, Doomas’ Co.
Wilhoit, Isaac, Doomas’ Co.
......Merrills of Ladonia, Fannin Co TX m-Col James Bourland's .. Sam Day's dau
......Wilhites of Ladonia, Fannin Co TX m-Col James Bourland's g-gdau .. Sam Day's gdau
... many Wilhites are in our Bourland Society
.......Renner, Geo lives next door to Wilhites in Ladonia.
...... Alex Jackson, b-1845 AL found in Hunt Co TX cen with Ladonia P.O.
.
Now to find the J.W. Peebles, Peoples ...
.
And yes, which of the 3 Dumas sons formed this little company. I'd guess the "John W. Dumas, b-1847, of Baylor's 2d Regt, Arizona Brigade."
