EARNEST Brothers(Wm&Euclyd)fromALA 1840s

Looking for connections with 2 brothers who
emigrated to Travis County and the Austin area from Alabama in and around the 1840s. They were William Earnest and his brother Euclyd Madison Earnest. These were the brothers of my GGGrandmother Amanda Earnest (Newton) who also emigrated from Alabama by way of Mississippi in the mid 1850s. She settled in the Medina, Frio and Bexar County areas. I have the following info about these brothers:

William Earnest married Martha Williamson - they had 12 children - he died in 1911 and she died in 1908 - they lived on a farm near Austin.

Euclyd Madison Earnest married F.M. Hamilton-
they had 7 children - he died in 1872 - they also lived on a farm near Austin.

There may have been a 3rd brother who came to Texas with them, but I know nothing about him.

Would welcome the opportunity to share family information with any descendents of these two Earnest brothers.
