I am seeking information about Anthony Benedict and family that migrated into the Goliad area in about 1860 from Princeton, Gibson Co., Indiana. His daughter, Hanah, my ggrandmother, married James hughes. Their first son was born in Goliad in 1872.
Anyone have any information about the Benedicts (or the Hughes')?

The 1850 Indiana census has the family:
Anthony Benedict, age 40 Brickmaker, owns $500 property, born Kentucky
Seline (Selina) age 30 born Indiana
Hanah age 12 born Indiana
Susanah age 10 born KY?
Albert age 9 born Indiana
Rachel age 7 born Indiana
Catherine age 6 born Indiana
Twins Mary and Martha less than a year old born Indiana

Any help with their time in Texas would be most welcome.
Thank you,
Marjorie Colby
