1) Isham Benjamin Jones and wife Minerva (Rambo) Jones. Isham is the son of Joseph Jones Jr. and the brother to Martha A. (Jones) Rainer. He moved his wife and children from Alabama to Texas in the early 1870's. I would like to know more about them and their life in Texas. I have a few letters that Isham and Minerva wrote to his mother Rutha and sister Martha. I'd be happy to share.
2) Minerva Rambo was living with Richard & Mary Williams on the 1850 Butler COunty, AL Census. I know that an Andy (Andrew) and Robert Williams traveled with Isham and Minerva to Texas. I have letters from them as well. Would like to know more about this Williams family.
Andy and Robert are living next door to Isham and Minerva Jones on the 1880 Census of Karnes County, Texas. They are living with Nancy A. and M.E. COmpton and are listed as brother-in-laws- of M.E. Compton. If any of this sounds famaliar, please email me!
Also researching the surname Rainer, descendants of James Jarvis Rainer. I have letters written from Kenan C. Rainer and his son James J. Rainer.
Any info on the above people/surnames would be appreciated and I would be happy to share what I have as well. Kim firstname.lastname@example.org
