U.S. States: Texas: Wheeler County
Does anyone know any information on the Belmonts or James from TX in the 1880-90's. I have a Ritchard Belmont (b: in Wheeler Co.?) who m:Martha James and they had one child that I know of Coleman James Belmont b:1 Dec.188?-something. There was a flood and Coleman was the only one in his family to survive. My grandmother tells me that Coleman joined the circus until he was adopted by a family who had a restraunt. I think the flood was in Wheeler or Tarrant Co. TX. in the 1880's or 1890's.
If anyone has ANY information on the names or on any floods in that time frame, or how I can continue my search, please let me know. I have not been able to go any further on this line.
Thank you for your time, Sincerely Cindy
