Re: Summers / Britain in Coryell County

In Reply to: Summers / Britain in Coryell County by rheata meisenheimer of 480

May I make a suggestion? Adding some dates for this couple would narrow the search. "They lived there for many years" doesn't tell us much. I took a quick look at the 1930 census and found them, with Sarah's mother living with them, she's also a Sarah. I tracked them back to 1920, mother still with them. Sarah and James do not seem to have any children. On the 1910 census the mother Sarah is listed as Sallie and with her husband N.H., 62 b TX. Along with a son, married daughter, son-in-law, and the father-in-law of N.H., John C. Moore, but birth location doesn't fit as father of Sallie. On 1900 census N.H. is listed as Newton H. Britain.

1880 census Coryell Co, TX:

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

N. H. BRITAIN Self M Male W 31 TX Farmer TN TN
Sallie BRITAIN Wife M Female W 24 KY Keeping House TN NJ
Jessie BRITAIN Dau S Female W 4 TX TX KY
Ollie BRITAIN Dau S Female W 3 TX TX KY
Wm. BRITAIN Son S Male W 1 TX TX KY

Well, it turns out Sallie Britain's maiden was indeed Moore.

Oh, I think you'll love what you find on Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Moore, John, b 1824 + or - five years, spouse Clark. Someone has done some research on this man and his military record etc.

Back to my suggestion, when you post a query include names, dates (even approximate dates) and locations, usually you'll get better results. I'm just one of those who tries to help where I can.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
