Linson/Wright Dallas Co., Texas 1880 Census
Posted by: Carla Shelton Womack Date: September 27, 2001 at 19:15:32
  of 1986

I am researching the family of David Wright born in 1818 in Va. He married Sarah ? in about 1847 in Ill. They had two sons in Ill. Then were listed on the 1850 Census in Scott Co. Ark, and the 1860 Census in Johnson Co. Ark. They had seven children: Greenberry b. 1848 Ill; John born 1849 Ill; Columbus b. 1851 Ark; Rebecca b. 1853 Ark; Willis b. 1855 Ark.; Amanda b. 1858 Ark.; and Margaret b. 1859/1860 Ark.
I found this Census for Dallas Texas 1880. It has Tolbert Linson 21 as head of family and Margrett 18 as wife. I am positive this is the Margaret mentioned above because it has her father David,half brother Charles, and half sister Nancy listed at the household in Dallas. David and the two siblings of Margaret are also listed in Wise Co., Tx on the 1880 Census in David's household. The dates are two weeks apart.
I am wondering if any one has any information on Tolbert Linson and Margaret. I would greatly appreciate and information or help I could get on them. David's family has been a struggle to find.
Thanks again for your help
