Asbury W. Carpenter Hood co TX 1888.

Hello, I am searching for information on this Asbury W. Carpenter , son of John C. Carpenter.I am trying to straghten out two Asbury W's. John C. Carpenter had a son William Sanford who married Elizabeth Caroline Howard and another son named Asbury W. ( the one I am searching for) This is confusing so please bear with me. When William and Caroline married they named children the same given names as Willam's brothers had. Their oldest was Asbury W. ( my gr.grandfather). Both of these Asburys lived in Hood county TX and evidently both were barbers. I had a researcher do some research for me and it is completely mixed up. I also have found that the first Asbury paid taxes in Hood co 1873.

This is what I have on the first Asbury, found on a scrap piece of paper in my grandmother Jessie Lee Carpenter Wright's Bible.

Asbury W. Carpenter, son of John C. Carpenter and Elizabeth
married Manny LEE. This Asbury W. died in the 18 Feb 1888. ( this info found in the Grnabury Library in a notebook)
children :
Francis Monroe
children :

then again is written Aaron Jr, Jimmy and Helen Wright

I am not sure by reading that note if Francis and Monroe were two sons or one son. Also, did Francis have a son Aaron who had a son Aaron Jr?

I know this is a terrible written query but it is all I have , any help deeply appreciated.

Thanks , Pat in OK
