My grt gf Wm I (Isiah or Isaac) Cogburn was living with step-father Adam F. Whisenhunt & mother Luisa A. White Cogburn Whisenhunt in Muddy Fork 1880. Not only do I have no name nor anything on his father, Unknown Cogburn; but don't yet have Luisa's family either.
Next door to them in the '80 census is Isaac & wife Luisa A of an age could be my Luisa's parents. With the names Isaac & Luisa as well as living next door I surely wonder if I can tie them to my Whites. I had just the other night, however, found a Luisa of appropriate age in Hunt Co TX with James & Sarah White family. Luisa was b. in east TX 1854; also she and Adam went to Hunt Co after leaving Ark, prior to moving on and settling in Taylor Co.
Also in Muddy Fork 1880 are households of Lawson & Meanda White and Joshua & Luanner(?) White. These men would be appropriately aged to be my grt-grt gm's brothers??
I'm wondering if anyone might know about these White families and could provide more information on them that might assist me either in connecting them to my White line or information that would help me decide they do not connect. I would appreciate anything at all. These clues seem promising but I don't know enough about my grt-grt gm to know what to do with them! All I "know" is that we think she had a brother named Gerd/Jerd who probably was also out in west TX at some point and that there were two brothers named Charlie and Ed White who came around the family (one at least lived in Willacy Co, TX) in the 1930's who we think are probably Luisa's nephews.
