I'm looking for any info on my GGG Grandmother, Mary Rebecca Miles, dau of William Hardy Miles & Ann Eppler of Carroll CO, MO.
Mary Rebecca Miles was born 19 Mar 1827 in Limestone CO, AL. She married Thomas Cross 27 June 1843 in Carroll CO, MO. She gave birth to my GG Grandfather, Jasper Newton Cross on 4 Oct 1845.
At some point, Mary Miles Cross moved to Texas. After her 1st husband died, she remarried to Josiah Dial O'Daniel and settled in Fayette CO, TX>
I have a lot of information on the family of Jasper Newton Cross family. Jasper N. Cross married Sophronia Criswell 15 Aug 1867 in Fayette CO, TX. Sophronia "Fronia" Criswell was the daughter of Joseph Eve Criswell & Sarah Ann McMicken. She was born 28 Dec 1850 in Fayette CO, TX. Jasper & Sophronia appear in the 1870 Fayette CO, Census. By 1880, they are living in McLennan CO, TX, most likely in Crawford. Both Jasper & Sophronia are buried in Big Spring, Howard CO, TX. I have information on the children of Jasper & Sophronia Cross.
Mary & Thomas Cross also had another son, Thomas B. Cross who was born 14 Feb 1855 and died 25 Aug 1926. He married Fannie Elizabeth Beauchamp. They are buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Martin CO, TX.
Mary's first husband, Thomas Cross died around 1850-55. I'm unsure of the exact date and am looking for help with this info. She married again to Josiah Dial O'Daniel 4 Jul 1861 in TX (not sure where they met). She died 5 Dec 1907 in San Angelo, Tom Green CO, TX. She and Josiah "Dial" O'Daniel lived in Fayette Co, TX for many years and had at least 3 children together. (J. Dial, Lillie Frances, and Milston "Mittie").
Dial O'Daniel was the son of Josiah O'Daniel and Drucilla "Millie" Maxwell. Dial's sister, Mary Rebecca O'Daniel, married John Yancy Criswell Jr. on 2 Dec 1847 in Fayette CO, TX.
I am looking for information on how or why Mary Miles Cross ended up in Texas. I am assuming that she moved there from Missouri, perhaps after her husband died, but do not have any proof. I also do not know when or where her first husband, Thomas Cross died. I am also looking for information about her other children.
Is anyone else working on these families?
