In Reply to: Thomas J. Young (1850's) Dallas County by Leah McCurdy of 1985

Hi Leah,
I first found Thomas, Rebecca and children in 1850 in Post Oak, Johnson Co., MO.
Thomas J., b. PA, 50, farmer.
Rebecca, wife, b. PA. 42.
Clarinda M., b. TN, 18.
Sophia T., b. TN, 15.
Samuel H., b. TN, 13.
Eliza J., b. TN, 11.
Andrew A., b. MO, 8.
Sally R., b. MO, 5.
Hetty, b. MO, 2.

I know that birth info for Thomas and Rebecca isn't what you have but mistakes are often made in the Censuses. Note Andrew A.

In 1860 the family was living in Precinct 2, Dallas Co., TX.
Thomas G., b. TN, 60.
Rebecca, b. TN, 49.
Eliza J., b. MO, 21.
A. E., son, b. MO, 18.
Sally R., b. MO, 14.

Again the birth place for Thomas doesn't match your info. Hopefully you have more info so you'll know if they are or aren't your family.

In 1870 the family was still living in Precinct 2.
Thomas J., b. Ireland, 70, machinist.
Rebecca R., b. TN, 62.
Andrew A., b. MO, 26, stock raiser.
William Watson, works on farm.
Ruben Johnson, works on farm.
Elizabeth Coleman w/ her two children, works on farm.

In 1880 Rebecca was living with her son Andrew and his family in Precinct 11, Coleman Co., TX.
Andrew, b. MO, 36, farmer.
Alice, wife, b. MO, 26.
Rebecca, mother, b. TN, 71.
Arthur, son, b. TX, 7.
Thomas, son, b. TX, 5.
Samuel Lockridge, boarder.
John Babb, boarder.
Richard Harris, boarder.
William Anderson, servant.
Maria Johnson, servant.
James M. Rouse, Boarder.

The 1890 Census was almost completely destroyed in a fire.

In 1900 Andrew and family were living in Justice Precinct 5, Coleman Co., TX.
Andrew A., b. MO, June 1843, marr 28 yrs, stock raiser, both parents' born MO.
Alice, wife, b. MO, Oct 1854, had given birth to three children who were alive in 1900.
Arthur E., son, b. TX, Oct 1873, single.
William L., son, b. TX, July 1883.
Ollie Cameron, neice, b. TX, July 1875, single.
Eliza Brittain, neice, b. TX July 1883.

In 1910 Arthur and Alice were living in Burkett, Coleman Co., TX.
Arthur, head, b. TX, 36, farmer.
Alice,mother, b. MO, 55, widow, had given birth to 3 children who were alive in 1910.
Adam Strader, uncle, b. MO, 65, widow.
Dan McCollister, laborer.

Neighors were Tom, Annie and son Young.

In 1920 Arthur and Alice were living in Justice Precinct 5, Coleman Co.
Arthur E., head, b. TX, 46, farmer, single.
Alice E., mother, b. MO, 65, widow.
Adam Strader, uncle, b. MO, 76, widow.
Dan H. McAllister, boarder.
George W. Forbes, boarder.

In 1930 Arthur and Alice were living in JP #5.
Arthur E., head, b. TX, 56, stock farmer, single.
Alice E., mother, b. MO, 75, widow.
Alice Younglove, servant.
John F. Dunn, cousin, b. TX 34, single, ranch hand stock farm.
