I have been searching for a long lost uncle, Thomas Hanlon, for decades and recently found a handwritten note by an ancestor indicating he had gone to San Antonio, Texas (from Iowa) and died there at the age of 24, which would have been around 1893 or so.

Obviously, Id love to find any documents or a grave, but am also curious what was going on in San Antonio around 1893?

Thank you so much.

am looking for any information on my great Uncle, Perry Reece Wilkinson, or Perry Reese Wilkinson. Not sure if the middle name is Reece or Reese, or Reese could come first and Perry second. Nonetheless, he was my grandfather's twin brother who was born in 1888 in Parker, Texas. My father tells me that his uncle had epilepsy and his seizures were so severe an unpredictable that Perry Reece was placed in a state home until his death at around the age of 33. My father said that my uncle was in the Abilene State School at one time, but Abilene has no records of him ever being there. I did locate a social security death certificate for a R.R. Wilkinson who died on February 12, 1921 at the age of 33 in Bexar County, Texas. The Death certificate numbers are either #3374 or #13860. I am wanting information about where the state school in San Antonio or Bexar County buried their deceased residents at that time. My father really wants to find his grave so that we can give him some type of headstone and at least know where he is buried at.

I am researching the family of Benjamin Thomas jr., the son of Benjamin Thomas Sr. and Mary Ann Dickinson. He was born in 1806, North Carolina. He settled in San Augustine around 1823. In 1838/39 he married Martha Engledow in Nacogdoches County, Texas. She died as a young mother in the 1840's. They had three children: William S., Martha Angelina, and Oscar E. Thomas.

Benjamin moved to Hays County and then to Bexar County, where I have 2 dates for a marriage to Penelope Wheeler. He is reported to have had a ranch some 15 to 20 miles outside of San Antonio. I need to confirm which of these years are correct: May 12, 1844 or May 12 ,1848?

Benjamin and Penelope had nine children together, with 6 living to adulthood. Benjamin died in 1891/92, reportedly on his ranch. He was a member of the Texas Veterans Association at that time. I do not know where he was buried, but it is reported that he had a military marker for his service at the Battle of San Jacinto. Is there an index of the where military markers are placed? Penelope died in 1915. I am trying to locate where this couple might have been buried.

Benjamin Thomas was a merchant, a traveling merchant. He spent much time back and forth to Mexico. He might have lived in Mexico at times. Two of his daughters with Penelope Wheeler, Laura and little Penelope, were born in Mexico. Benjamin and Penelope had children: Benjamin F., Laura Jane, Mary Ann, Penelope Ann, Almeda Ruth, Sophronia Ellen, Lillie, and an unknown child who died young.

This was around Christmas 1883. They were md. by Ferdinand Munme, Minister. This was taken from a book: Early marriages 1813-1839 (Bexar County)

I can't find anything of him at all. I did find a Lewis Milton Tyler in Denton County having a father named Luther H Tyler. Is Denton close to Bexar County?

If I could come up with a death record or obituary for Luther or a Census for 1870, it might help.

I am researching my Great Grandmother Louise GERSBACH. She, her father Salomon and her brother Julius were in San Antonio circa 1874-1881. I have record of them being in LA in 1873 and St Louis in 1884, but I have no proof of where Louise and Salomon were between those dates. I do have proof taht Julius worked at a store called Wolfson's and I have found him in a few directories for San Antonio. He stayed in TX and raised a family. Louise and her father left Texas and came to St Louis. Family lore says that Louise became pregnant by a married man in Texas. From that she had a daughter Ida, born 20 Jun 1881. Now, for a long time I thought Ida's surname was Gersbach, but have now obtained several documents that show her last name as ... WOLFSON. Hmmmmm. Her death certificate goes so far as to include her father's first name "Sol". I have found reference to a Sol Wolfson in Texas - connected to a Wolfson store as well - whom I think is connected to the Wolfson House in San Antonio.

Now, a few St Louis city directories show Louise GERSBACH as widow of Saul (or Sol). In addition one census states her first married was in 1879, though she married my Great-Grandfather is 1885 and we have no knowledge of another marriage. While Ida is said to have been born in St Louis, I can find no birth certificate.

So I would like suggestion on:

1) How to find any records to confirm Louise and Salomon GERSBACH were in San Antonio
2) How to confirm if a marriage did exist between Louise and Sol WOLFSON
3) How to see if perhaps Ida was really born in Texas instead of St Louis.
4) How to confirm if Sol Wolfson the store owner was really Ida's father.

I am from St Louis, but currently living in London, so would appreciate any help you could offer.

I recently accessed the 1870 Bexar County census in the hope of finding the following relatives:

They are listed in the 1860 census as follows:

Film 805288 -- Bexar county,TX 23 July 1860--page 320, dwelling 2537, family 2424

On 20 March 1866 Sarah bought a lot on Pecan Street where she lived until she died, so it appears that she should be listed on the census.

I found Jane COLE (a married daughter) listed with her family but found no trace of the WALLACE family. In the 1891 directory, there is a Jane COLE listed as having a Boarding House at 17 and 19 Pecan Street. (Sarah died in 1879 and is buried in City Cemetery #1)

I have checked every name on the 1870 census in Bexar County and could not find one that I thought could be a variation of WALLACE that would be the family above. Does anyone have anything that might help me understand or resolve this issue?

I am looking for any information about Ruby Odell Earnest, born Nov. 19, 1913 in Fannin Co., TX. He was born to Robert Dallas and May L. Davis EARNEST. May Davis was the second wife of Robert Dallas and there were supposedly other children born to them. One was a daughter named Ada or Addie and would also be interested in any information about her. Odell applied for his Social Security number is Bexar Co. and SSDI records indicate he died there March 1, 1976. Did he marry, and if so, who? Did he have children, thus any descendants? Am interested in any information about him. Thank you.
