There were many more families from Gadsden Co. who migrated to Wilson Co, TX. Andrew Jackson Barber, his wife Amarantha Robinson Barber and all their grown children moved there in the 1880's. Amarantha's brother Ferdinand Robinson and wife moved there before 1880. Pharoah Poppel is living with Ferdinand Robinson in 1880 and is identified as a nephew of Ferdinand. Others who moved from Gadsden Co to Wilson Co include the Allen's, Peavy's and Woodley's. A lady from Tallahassee told me that her mother had letters written in the early 1900's detailing cattle drives made by ex Gadsden Co people from Wilson Co, TX to Florida.
