How can I determine if W.L. Hendricks, buying land in Hamilton County in 1883, is Washington Lafayette Hendricks, b. 1833 in Monroe County, MS? I find him and family (wife Elizabeth J. Hunt, children: L., Isabell, and John Lewis) in the 1860>MS>Monroe census, and know he moved everybody to TX after the Civil War, but I can't find him in any 1870 or 1880 census. In 1878 his son marries in Coryell County, and by 1893 Washington Lafayette is living in San Saba County. Might he have sojourned in Hamilton County? Thanks for any help,
Peggy Hendricks
