In Reply to: Alfred B. Soules by Robert Soules of 266

I am not related, but here is what I found in the census:

Alfred B. Soules' father was Benjamin C. Soules, as per the 1900 and 1910 census of Mills co TX. Alfred B.(Benjamin) Soules was born June 1888 in TX
He must have been raised by a step-mother, Mary F.

To find who Alfred's mother was you would probably need to find a marriage record. She apparently died when he was a baby, perhaps even in childbirth.

Benjamin C. Soules parents were Francis M. (Frank) and Sarah A. Soules. Frank was born Aug 1837 IN and Sarah was born Jan 1841 AR. In 1870 and 1880 they are found in Austin, Travis co TX. In 1900 they are in Mills co household to son, Ben C. Soules.
