Hi Nancy,

The first I see of them in Llano County is the 1910 Census. They were in Bexar County in 1900, and in 1880 Philip was 24, still single and in Atascosa County. He was born in Mississippi and his wife was born in Texas (her parents were also born in Mississippi):

1900 Federal Census (Pct. 5, Bexar, TX, E.D. 116):

Casper Philip -- M May 1852 (48) Farmer
Luella (?) -- F Dec 1862 (37) married 18 years
Milton -- M Aug 1884 (15) at school
Virgil -- M Aug 1887 (12) at school

1910 Federal Census (Pct. 1, Llano, TX, E.D. 175):

Casper Philip -- M 57 Janitor (school)
Louella -- F 47 (two children, both still living in 1910)

According to the 1870 Federal Census (District 1, Nacogdoches, TX) his mother was named Virginia, she was 43 years old and his father did not appear in this household (so she may have been widowed by 1870). This census shows that his middle initial was M.

As for Louella's ancestry, here's what I found in 1880 (Atascosa, TX, Precinct 2):

MORRIS James S. M 48 Farmer
Nancy F 35 Keeping house
Cora F 10 daughter
BISHOP Louela F 17 stepdaughter

I can not locate Philip or Louella in any census records for 1920.
