Would like to confirm that Gabriella HAYES listed in the 1910 census of Polk Co, TX is Gabreilla Ellen CARSON b. abt 1845, MS.

She is the daughter of Samuel R CARSON and Evaline BLACKWELL. She is listed in the 1850 census of Washington Parish, LA in hh of her parents; 1870 census of Rapides Parish, LA (in hh of Joseph CHAPMAN); 1880 census of A C SHARP). She had 3 children with Joseph CHAPMAN.

She m.(1) abt 1865 Joseph CHAPMAN

m.(2) abt 1878 A C SHARP

On 30 Dec 1888 in Polk Co, TX Mrs. Gabreilla SHARP married J. H. HAYES.

In the 1910 census, she is listed as having 3 children, 1 living. SO THIS SEEMS TO FIT. Two families up from her in the 1910 census, 308-308 is listed a CHAPMAN, but it appears to be the first name. The census is unclear, but this might be her son.

Also her brother, Elbert Hillard CARSON, is listed in the 1900 and 1920 censuses of Polk Co, TX. I descend from E.H. CARSON.

Pretty sure this is her, but would like some additional confirmation and would really like to get into touch with a descendant of her family.
