Thank you for your reply. The Sewell Norris in Lowndes County, MS is my g-grandfather. He married Margaret E. Parker in 1837 in MS. I don't know when he came to Texas, but he is on the 1850 census, Harrison County, Texas. I don't know where Margaret died or when, but one FWT source says between 1856-58, which also says she was born in Alabama in 1820, daughter of Thomas Parker and Charlotte Allen. The last child of Sewell and Margaret Norris, Jefferson Llewellyn Norris, born April 10 1857, is my grandfather, so Margaret died sometime after that. Sewell Norris married Asena Williams Millican Evetts July 11, 1858. She died in 1861 and Sewell died bet 1860-62, so I don't know who raised my grandfather.
As to the maiden name of Thomas Norris' wife, Frankey--, that came from someone else's information, so I don't have any proof. Another WFT source states the wife of Thomas Norris as being Frankey Buskey, daughter of Jonathan Buskey and Mary Ann---so, no proof there either.
