They are not in Texas in 1880. If I look in Alabama, I get some confusing listings. Here's a Charlie with a wife's name that's similar to Amazon. 1880 Census Place: Beat 3, Choctaw, Alabama Source: FHL Film 1254007National Archives Film T9-0007Page 275C Name Relation Sex Marr Race Age Birthplace Charley MC CRAY Self M M MU 47 MS Occ: Farmer Fa: MS Mo: MS Avaline MC CRAY Wife F M MU 46 NC Occ: Works On Farm Fa: --- Mo: --- Patsey MC CRAY Dau F S MU 17 AL Occ: Works On Farm Fa: MS Mo: NC Mary C.

Only a few young Charles McCreas, born 1870,71, and 77. One Charles McCrea, born 1800. If I copy too many records, it just makes a person dizzy. If any of those birthdates look right, I could copy it. Looking in the national index, there is no Amazon McCrea. One black Callie McCrea, wife, born 1855 in KY. 176 Charles McCreas of various spellings. If anything looks interesting here, let me know. I love the hunt. In fact, when I find somebody on the first try, I think it's boring!
