I'm not related to this person.

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships or parental birthplaces.

Abijah D.(Ledge) Pelton may be any one of these -
Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”
Orphaned children were not enumerated as "orphan"

There are several Pelton family members buried at this cemetery.

Under this assumption -
Could Abijah D.(Ledge)Pelton really have died in 1871 in Hico, TX and that Pard Pelton is an iligitmate child of Charlotte's?

Order Pard's death cert. to discover his father's name.

TEXAS Vital Record -
The Texas Vital Statistics law to register births and deaths was not passed until 1903. Texas was then and is now a dual registration state which means the local registrars retain a copy of all birth and death records for the events that take place within their jurisdiction and the state retains the original of all birth and death records for the entire State of Texas. However, the statutes for registering these events were not made mandatory until 1926. However, many local registrars did not adhere to the statutes until the late 1930’s or early 1940’s. This means some records reside only in the local registrars’ files and not with the State.
