1880 census Freestone Co, TX:

1870 census Freestone Co, TX:

Shed, Moses, 35, b LA
" Mina, 30, b LA
" Milley, 14, b TX
" Nancy, 21, b TX
" Jane, 2, b TX
" Eliza A., 3, b LA
" Mary, 5/12, b TX
Ringer, David, 17, b TX, TX, TX

No Shed on the 1860 TX census index, and only one family on the 1860 LA census index. He is white and listed as an overseer, so maybe there were slaves on the property. You might check slave schedules for Concorida Parish, LA in 1860.

Except for the 1880 & 1920 census the families are listed as Black. On the 1900 census Mose owns farm free and clear, you might check land and probate records for him.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
