You didn't include any dates, or approximate dates, in your query, but I found in your message history where you were asked for dates, and you show Ned b 1865 in Iola or Iona, TX. Iola is in Grimes Co, TX, and Iona is in Parker Co, TX. But, you say Ned was born in Erath Co, TX. Here is handy dandy site to locate counties for TX towns/cities:

1860 census Erath Co, TX:

Whitlock, Alexander, 50, b SC - land 150/personal $240
" Susan, 30, b GA
" Martha J., 7, b AR
" Ann, 5, b AR
" Whittenton, 3, b TX

1870 census Hood Co, TX:

Powell, George, 52, b GA - land 700/personal 1000
" Adavine, 47, b GA
" Sarah J., 25, b AL
" Robert, 22, b AR
" Charles, 21, b AR
" Lewis, 18, b AR
" George, 15, b AR
" Julia, 11, b TX
" John, 9, b TX

Next Door:

Willcock[sic], Alexander, 60, b SC - no land/personal 400
" Martha J., 18, b AR
" Nancy, 16, b AR
" Whitington, 13, b TX
" James, 10, b TX
" Ned, 6, b TX

Next door:

Powell, Jackson, 28, b GA
" Hannah, 26, b TX
" Clebern P., 2, b TX

Next door:

Powell, Joseph, 23, b AR
" Ellen, 23, b TX
" Fredonia, 5, b TX
" Samuel, 3, b TX
" Alice, 1, b TX

Is George the father of your Susan? Looks like the family is all living right in a row. By 1880 census Hood Co, TX, George and three of his sons with their families are living right in a row, one son and son-in-law are not there.

I suggest you keep an eye out for Alexander having a previoius wife, he is a older then Susan by a few years, older then her father George. Also, check to see if he fought in the Civil War, there is a 4 year gap between James and Ned, he could have been off fighting. I don't think he would have lived long enough to apply for a TX Confederate Pension. TX began that in 1889 and I don't see Alexander on the index. Actually, I don't see him on the online military index for the Civil War, either, but he could have belonged to a militia group which never was officially turned over to the CSA.

I do not have access to online 1850 census index. You should be able to find George Powell in Arkansas in 1850, and that would give you an AR county in which to look for parents of Alexander Whitlock. From age of oldest child on the 1860 census, Alexander would have been in AR by at least 1852/53 and likely earlier then that.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
