You didn't include any dates, or approximate dates, for anyone in your query, very important. But, since Alpha Jewell isn't too common I started with her.

TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 --;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You can view digitized copy of original death record, see more details, make printout and look for others, too.

Collection: Texas Deaths, 1890-1976

1900 census Mills Co, TX, pg 207:

Sexton, H.F., hd, b Apr 1870, 30, M 12 yrs, b MS, TN, TN
" Scott, wf, b Aug 1870, 29, M 12 yrs, 6 ch, 4 lvg, b TX, AL, TX
" John, s, b Nov 1889, 10, b TX
" Olia, d, b Oc 1890, 9, b TX
" Henry, s, b Mahy 1893, 7, b TX
" Althea[sic], d, b Apr 1895, 5, b TX

Page 150, looks like parents of H.F.:

Sexton, James D., h, b Jan 1832, 68, M 48, b TN, TN, SC
" Frances E., w, b Apr 1834, 66, M 48 yrs, 11 ch, 8 lvg, b TN, VA, VA
" Mollie M., dau-in-law, b Dec 1875, 24, M 5yrs, 2 ch, 2 lvg, b TX, TX, TX
" Lois, gr dau, b Sep 1896, 3, b TX, MS, TX
" Jacob, gr son, b Dec 1898, 1, b TX, MS, TX

Note, father of the 2 gr children born MS, he would be brother to H.F. who also was born in MS.

1880 census Haywood Co, TN:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

J. D. SEXTON Self M Male W 48 TN Farmer TN SC
F. E. SEXTON Other M Female W 46 TN Keeping House VA VA
W. O. SEXTON Other S Male W 21 MS Farmer TN TN
G. D. SEXTON Other S Male W 18 MS Farmer TN TN
Roxa SEXTON Other S Female W 16 MS Keeping House TN TN
Medora SEXTON Other S Female W 13 MS TN TN
H. T. SEXTON Other S Male W 10 MS TN TN
Minnie SEXTON Other S Female W 7 MS TN TN
L. A. SEXTON Other S Male W 5 MS TN TN
Thurman SEXTON Other S Male W 3 MS TN TN

If you looked at the handwritten copy of this census I'm willing to bet H.T. is H.F. and your Henry.

Well, here he is and now you know his middle name. 1870 census Tippah Co, MS:

Sexton, J.D., 37, b TN - land 1200/personal 700
" F.E., 35, b TN
" E.C., 16, b MS
" S.J., 14, b MS
" J.M., 12, b MS
" W.O., 10, b MS
" G.D., 8, b MS
" Roxanna, 6, b MS
" Medora, 3, b MS
" H. Fox, 1, b MS ****************

Census enumerators made more then one copy of their records and it looks like this one made an error in given name for James, all the children fit. And next door it looks like his parents.

1860 census Tippah Co, MS:

Sexton, Richard[sic], 28, b TN - land 1500/personal 500
" Elizabeth, 24, b TN
" Colbert, 8, b MS
" Sarah Jane, 5, b MS
" Jas. M., 3, b MS
" Wm., O., 1, b MS
Nixon, Catherine, 15, b MS

Next door:

Sexton, Elijah, 51, b TN - land 1500/personal 400
" Temperance, 50, b SC
" Mary 15, b TN

Happy Hunting (^_^)
