In Reply to: Samuel's in Newton County, Texas by Jessica Davis of 178

By now you may have found what you wanted, if not may I make some suggestions? You stated "they were brought to Newton County, Texas by a Judge David R. Wingate" which made me wonder, were they slaves? After looking at census records, they are all listed as Black, except Levi Samuel on the 1880 census he's listed as mulatto. You might want to make that clear in your queries. It really helps to narrow down searches.

1870 census Newton Co, TX:

Davias[sic], Nelson, 27, b MS
" Missosuri, 23, b MS
" Roxa, 4, b TX
" Genevia, 2, b TX
" Paul, ?/12, b TX, b Dec

Next door, probably parents of Nelson:

Davias, Levi, 65, b MS no land/personal 125
" Mary 50, b MS
" Rachal, 35, b MS
" Julia, 7, b TX

On the 1880 census Nelson and Missouri Lerias[sic] and children are living next door to Levi Samuel 46, b MS, MS, MS, wife and children. And next to Levi is Samuel Samuel 28, b MS, MS, MS probably son of Levi. I would say these families are tied together.
