States: Texas: Ellis
In the 1880 census there is a David Thomas and and Amanda Cleff in the 4th precinct, Ellis county. Amanda was born in 1857 in Tn. After 1880 they apparently got married and had at least 3 children, Estell, Pearl, and Felix whose death certificates show David Thomas & Amanda Cleff as their parents. The children were born in Waxahacie and Italy. By 1900 the 3 children were in an orphange in Corisana. Pearl is the grandmother of my husband and I am trying to find out what happened to David and Amanda for the children to be put in an orphange. Also, I need information on David's parents. If David and/or Amanda died in Ellis county I would like to know where they are buried. Any information would be much appreciated as I have been working on this for several years. Thanks.
