Seeking information on Lindsey Marshall BOOTHE {1824-1878)and Susan A. BLANN (1835-1877). Married on 12-28-1852 in Dallas County, ALABAMA. The couple are noted in the 1850 Census for that County. Family tradition has it that they went to Texas along with her sister Lorany BLANN GRAVES who had married Benjamin Franklin GRAVES. Lorany and Benjamin both died ca. 1853 and 1854 living not far from her sister's home (Susan A. BALNN BOOTHE). Census records show that the BOOTHE's returned to Alabama bringing most of the couples children and dispersing them among relatives except for the youngest B. Frankling Graves Jr. who lived with them. They are found in US Census to 1870 living in Alabama. Some sources record they moved back to DeLeon Texas in Commanche County and died there ca 1877-78 from a covered wagon accident and were buried in Eastland County Texas. Any information on confirming what happened to the GRAVES while in Texas and then the BOOTHE's who died there in late 1870's would be appreciated.
