Robert Emmett McFall

We are seeking information on my gggfather, Robert Emmett (R.E.) McFall ( 4 December1818--30 May 1868); his parents, brothers, sisters, and birthplace. He served with the Confederate States Army during the Civil War. Military papers and the 1860 Freestone County Texas census indicate that he was born in Kentucky.
There is some indication that McFalls traveled from the east coast to Cincinatti,Ohio. A McFall will probated in Clermont Co. Ohio at the turn of the century left property to Samuel, Emmett, Bertha, & James McFall, minor children of Florence McFall. Clermont County is in the Cincinnatti area just across the river from Kentucky. Perhaps Robert Emmett was born in Kentucky as his family traveled to Texas by way of the Missouri Teritory. My ggfather, Wallace Warren McFall, indicated on the 1900 census for the Freestone County Texas that his family came from Missouri. Family tradition says the Robert Emmett was a wagoneer on the wagon trains to the west from Missouri. There is some evidence to link to Sam McFall (from Kentucky), an early Indian fighter, Texas Ranger and soldier in the Texas war against Mexico. Robert first appeared in Texas on the tax rolls for Navarro County in 1849.
Robert Emmett married Elizabeth Frances Spillers (born 22 August 1834--died 21 January 1905), daughter of William Harper & Nancy Jane Andrew Spillers in Freestone County Texas on Jan 18, 1855. Robert & Francis has six children; Mary Jane, Elizabeth Frances, Andrew, Ora Bell, Caroline (Carrie) and Wallace Warren. Wallace Warren was my ggfather. Wallace's son C.C. McFall, was my grandfather; born in Freestone County Texas.
I will gladly exchange any information we have with you.
