Thank you so much for your help. Yes, I am aware of of her offspring. I have visited the cemetaries where they are buried. Mary Limpier's first 3 children went by the name Limpier. She worked as a servant for the Pat Cogland and Milam Taylor families for about 10 years at a stagecoach station. She then married Jonathan Soule and had 3 more children. A lot of the family offspring still reside there. Edward Limpier, which you found, was her 3rd child and Eugene and Cora were her grandchildren. I visited with Cora and her brother several times in the 1980's and the neither could tell me anything of Mary Limpier's past. I even asked them who their grandfather was. I never figured out if they didn't know her past or if they were unwilling to speak of it because of possible illegitimantcy before her marriage to Jonathan Soule. It is through 2 of the 3 offspring that I have found what little information that I have. This has been a dead end so many years. I often think that she took the information to the grave with her! I was in hopes that old Catholic records might list some answers, but were would one find these records? I have checked in Mason, Menard, Fredericksburg and Austin without any results. No one seems to know where the Mason records are kept. I have located her in the 1870,1880,1900 and 1910 census. I cannot find her in the 1860 census. I found the family that she was living with at Ft. Mason in the 1860 census, but she and her children were not listed. I know that she was there because I have the pension deposition that Mrs. Cogland/Talor wrote to the govenment that states that imformations for the years 1857-1880. Help!-Linda Latham
