How wonderful you know so much about your early Texans, not a lot of records survived that long. My earliest Texan (Standefer) was in Texas in 1838 (documented) maybe a little earlier than that. It's a family from 1600s in MD > VA > TN > MS > TX that only uses about six first names, over and over and over again. Try to sort out fathers/sons, brothers, nephews and cousins.
Most of the lines I research have everyone named James or Elizabeth. Ugh My husband's grandfather was James and it goes back three more generations in a direct line. So it isn't just mine. One of my more "recent" lines goes back from NY to Ireland and guess what, yep, James Harper and Elizabeth Black. Try that in Ireland.
And, thank you for the lesson about the early Irish in Texas, we learn sumpin' almost every day.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
