I would like to contact anyone related to an African American family in Bastrop Co iin 1870-1880 and later.
l870 census: Hilman Prouet 40 Ga, Carol 26 Ala, Helen, James, Thomas and a female baby.
on p.539 Dock Pruet 32 Ga and Mahille 21 male child 8, child age 2, blus a baby

1880 census in Smithville: Hillman Pruit 50 Ga, Mahaley 29 (?Mandy), Dock, Jamaes, Lila, elizabeth, charles,Thomas and Laura
also #101 Dock Pruit 40 Ga and Sarah 35

I have a Hillman Pruett in Texas in l860 (caucasian) and would love to know where Hillman got his name.
Thank you,
Lajuan Pruett Boyle
