Thank you Patricia,

My ggrandfather Richard Crutcher was in Port Sullivan in the 1870 Census and his sister Ann Ham was in Milam Co in 1880. Her husband, Stephen R Ham, was brother-in-law to Richard. Brother and sister married brother and sister.

I think that Richard and his wife Louisa had children who died in childhood. I don't have their names, but the 1900 Census in Dallas lists her as having 11 children with only 5 still living. I have found four of those children. In that 1870 TX census listed with Richard and Louisa are Tom and Samuel Crutcher, their sons born in TN. I just wondered if they did die in childhood since I cannot find them anywhere her in TX.

Richard and Ann, had three half-brother, John, William, & Locke Boyd, and a half-sister, Elizabeth Boyd.

I have found some info on Ann, William, Locke in Tennessee in 1870, but not a trace of John or Elizabeth Boyd that I could say without a doubt the info was for my ancestors!

If Ann came to TX by 1880 Census to be with her brother, (she has a child named Mary I. Ham here in TX on that 1880 Census), I thought that maybe she and her husband had other children who could have died in Milam Co also. Her other half-siblings could have come with her to TX, because William and Locke Boyd are enumerated with her and her husband in the TN 1870 Census.

These Boyd half-siblings were probably married by 1880, but I am checking to see if some could also have moved on down to Texas. These 6 siblings all lost their parents by 1857. No parents were left in Tennessee to encourage them to stay, but there could always be mother and father-in-laws.

Thanks for the help. and the time you spent checking for me in cemetery records!
