I'm looking for information on Mary Ann Johnson Tibbets and Martin VanBuren Tibbets. Martin and several of his brothers are listed on the Confederate Indigent Families List of TX 1863-1865. Martin is shown as MV Tibbets living in Hunt County.

Martin married Mary Ann Johnson 3 Feb 1860 in Cooke County, TX. On the 1860 Census, they were counted by the Gainesville Post Office in Cooke County, TX. I know they had a son named George W. Tibbet. According to George's death certificate, he was born Aug 1862 in Viola, TX (I'm assuming Cass County). Martin enlisted in the Confederate Army in 1864 and was mustered out in 1865. Then he's listed on this indegent family list. I don't know what happened to Mary Ann or George. I don't know if Martin was in Hunt County prior to enlisting or after.

I'm hoping someone can help me find out what happened to Mary Ann and who her parents were.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
