Researching Brandon Family in Kaufman Prct 4 bef 1891
Posted by: julie Rounsaville (ID *****6088) Date: January 27, 2005 at 07:57:15
  of 961

Researching Henry J. Brandon b 1852-54 from Henry County, Tn married Nancy E. Matheney b 1854 -56, in 1873, Henry or Benton county., Tn.

I have found them in the 1900 Kaufman County Census , Precinct 4. Could someone tell me where is Precinct 4? Direct me toward area town or towns?

This family left Henry County, Tn after 1886, found in 1891 Hopkins Co,Tx, 1892-1895 ? Henderson, Tx, 1900 Kaufman, 1910 and 1920 Hardeman Co.Tx.

Henry J. ,b. Jan 1854 Tn
Elizabeth, b. March 1856, Tn ( Nancy Elizabeth)
son: Jessie J., b. Nov 1882 Tn
Dau: ?, b. Jan 1884 Tn
Son: Jackson, b. Jan 1886 Tn ( Zack)
Dau: Mary E., b. April 1892, Texas
Son: Archie , b. Sep 1889 Tex
son: Elbert, b. april 1895, Tx
son: Emmett, b. June 1899, Tx was 11 months old on the census

Daughter L.E. (Lizzie Brandon) b1875 Tn is not living with them at the time. She could have possible married or past away.
Something happens to 2nd ( ?) Daughter and son Archie (not a marriage) more probable death or accident. I did not know about their existence until listed 1900 Kaufman census.

The children (Lizzie)(? daughter)(Archie)do not appear with family on the 1910 Census Quanah, Hardeman County. I am curious what happened to them between 1900 and 1910? Was there a epidemic or sickness, or accicent?

In a letter written in 1913 by Nancy and Henry they state they had 14 children only 5 were living as of 1913 ( Jessie, Zack, Minnie (Mary), Oscar Elbert, John Emmitt)

I found come across the following surname will researching this family: Matheney, Beck, Odom, Robbins, Cheatham in Tn and Rickard, Lee, Martin, Tucker, Burns, Stephens in Tx

Thank you,

Julie Brandon Rounsaville
