I am searching for information on William Longworth, b. ca. 1829 in Canada. He is found in Gonzales County 1860 in the community of Rancho. In the home are his wife, Sarah, 29 years old, born in Ireland, Thomas, 11 years old, born in LA.; John, 9 years old, born in LA.; William, age 4, born in LA.: Esther, age 2, born in TX. and George, one month, born in Texas.
In 1870, I find William Longworth (age 45) in Wilson County living in the early community of Lodi (now a part of Floresville.) His son, George, nine years old, is the only member of the immediate family in the household. After 1873 and a 160 acre land transaction, I find no further trace of William Longworth.
A son, Thomas, is found in Lincoln County, New Mexico in 1880 working as a constable.
Another son, George, (1860-1937) died in Maricopa County, AZ. His death certificate says he was born in Wilson County, Texas. He lived in the Scottsdale District working as a Cobbler. He is buried in the Camelback Cemetery in that county.
I am working with a committee in Wilson County to locate photographs of all our past County Judges to hang in our courthouse. William Longworth served as County Judge of Wilson County, Texas in 1865 and again in 1869. I need to locate descendants of William Longworth or a county archives who might have a photo of this man and would share with our county. William may have gone to Karnes County after leaving Wilson County.
