Looking for descendants of Emma B. Pitner Tolson Price (b.1856 TX d. 1915 Haskell Co., TX). Emma was the only daughter of William C. Pitner (b.1825-1829 AL) and Jane E. Brown Pitner (b.1831 AL d. 1898 Haskell Co., TX).
I am endeavoring to determine what became of her father, William C. Pitner. William was a traveling merchant. He married Jane E. Brown in 1848 in Rusk Co., TX. William and Jane are on the 1850 census in Rusk County. The family is then found on the 1860 census in Madison Co., AR where a brother of William lives. I have yet to locate William and his family on the 1870 census.
Emma is on the 1880 census in Denton, TX with her first husband, James Tolson. Her youngest brother, Thomas E. (b.1866 TX) is on the 1880 census in Throckmorton Co. I have yet to find William and Jane on the 1880 census; the theory being they were traveling and the census takers simply missed them.
Emma's husband dies in 1886. She remarries to James A. Price and is found on the 1900 Haskell County, Census. She had four sons with Tolson and one son with Price. Her mother dies in 1898 in Haskell County; her brother, Thomas, is killed in 1899 in Haskell County. Her second husband, Price, dies inn 1913; Emma dies in 1915; her son with Price dies in 1918. However, her four sons with James Tolson grow to adulthood, marry, and leave abundant descendants in Texas.
Did Emma leave a bible record? did it include information of when/where her father died and might be buried? Any information appreciated.
