Como is in Hopkins Co, TX. Here is a handy dandy site to locate county for TX towns/cities:

http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/tx/cities.htm

1880 Hopkins Co, TX:

Category: Name; Relationship to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

J. P. BYRD Self M Male W 30 GA Farmer GA GA
M. E. BYRD Wife M Female W 19 TX Keeping House GA GA
James M. BYRD Son S Male W 7 TX Going To School GA GA
Daisey L. BYRD Dau S Female W 5 TX GA GA
Wm. A. BYRD Son S Male W 3 TX GA GA

Next door, probably a brother to J.P.:

H. C. BYRD Self M Male W 35 GA Farmer GA GA
A. E. BYRD Wife M Female W 30 MS Keeping House AL AL
W. E. BYRD Son S Male W 11 TX Going To School GA MS
A. J. BYRD Son S Male W 9 TX Going To School GA MS
C. A. BYRD Son S Male W 7 TX Going To School GA MS
J. A. BYRD Son S Male W 4 TX GA MS
M. L. BYRD Dau S Female W 2 TX GA MS

Wonder if this another member of the same Byrd line. Look what they named little 8 mth old girl:

W. D. BYRD Self M Male W 44 GA Farmer GA GA
A. E. BYRD Wife M Female W 41 GA Keeping House GA GA
Jack BYRD Son S Male W 20 TX Work On Farm GA GA
Winnie BYRD Dau S Female W 16 TX At Home GA GA
Ira BYRD Son S Male W 14 TX At Home GA GA
Willie BYRD Son S Male W 11 TX At Home GA GA
Robt. BYRD Son S Male W 9 TX At Home GA GA
Corrinna BYRD Dau S Female W 6 TX At Home GA GA
Hubbard BYRD Son S Male W 4 TX At Home GA GA
Looney BYRD Dau S Female W 8M TX At Home GA GA
Hamp GRAYSON Other S Male B 23 MS Work On Farm UNKNOWN UNKNOWN

This family is in Hopkins Co, TX 1870 census, and I wonder if the "Judson" listed at the bottom could be the J.P. on the 1880 census. You show a Judson in names of Daisy's sons. Looks like these two are brothers. If you can't find J.P. then track W.D./William he owns land, may show up in county historeis etc.

Byrd, William, 35, b GA - carpenter
" Ann 32, b GA
" Alberta, 12, b TX
" Jack, 10, b TX
" Lizzie, 8, b TX
" Winiford, 6, b TX
" John, 4, b TX
" William, 1, b TX
" Ira, 19, b GA
" Judson, 23, b GA - clerk in store
Stoke, Madana, 16, (black), b GA - domestic servant

1860 census Hopkins Co, TX:

Byrd, W.D. 21, b GA - druggist
" Ann, 21, b GA
" Alberter(sic), 2, b TX
" Jack, 5/12, b TX

Same county, wonder if this Mary is mother of the above Byrds. Columbus could be the H.C. on 1880, and if they made a sligt error in initials, instead of J.P., maybe it should have been J.T., then Thomas would fit, too.

Byrd, Mary, 45, b GA
" James, 22, b GA
" John, 20, b GA
" Frances, 18, b GA
" Columbus, 16, b GA
" Thomas, 13, b GA
" Sarah, 10, b GA
" William 2, b TX

Mary owns land, check out land and probate records, see who shows up as her heirs. They all will need to sign off when final sale of her land is made, to give clear title to buyer.

I got to thinking about less common name of Judson, went to Byrd GenForum, typed in Judson in the box marked Search this Forum. Someone has info on your Judson, looks like Mary is his mother. On Byrd GenForm in box that says Jump to # -- type in 3980, then respond to that submitter.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
