I am seeking information on Ely M Calcote/Calcoate
Lydia Ann Black married E M Calcote in Burleson Co TX on 12-6-1870 Page 36
by 1880 this couple was in Milam Co Tx after this i cant find them.
1880 Milam Co TX Census page 62 SD 5 ED 101 Jones Prairie Princt Beat 2 6-22-1880 Family 415-421 Calcoate Ely M W M Age 47 Married Farmer MS MS MS Lydia A W F age 27 wife Maried Keeping house TX SC SC Josephine L W F age 8 daughter Single TX MS TX Mary P W F age 6 daughter Single TX MS TX Ada B W F age 1 daughter Single TX MS TX William H W M age 14 son SingleTX MS TX
I am trying to verify this Lydia was the daughter of Joseph L Black a Physician in both Van Zandt Co Tx in 1860 and Burleson co TX in 1870
This Joseph apprarently was married 2 times his first wife's name is unknown but his 2nd wife was Elizabeth Clark whom he married on 12-13-1855 Van Zandt Co TX They had a son named Virgil Bobo Black he is the man we are trying to find in 1880 census He would of been age 24.
1860 Van Zandt Co TX Sabine Beat PO Mustang 7-10-1860 Census page 66 Family 432-450 J L Black age 43 M Physician 250 910 S Carolina E Black age 27 F Georgia S H Black age 10 F Texas attended school within year L H Black age 8 F Texas attended school within year V B Black age 3 M Texas J W Black age 2 M Texas C A Black age 1 M Texas There is no other Black’s in Van Zandt in 1860 There are quite a few Clark’s however (no marriage in Van Zandt for Virgil either)
1870 Burleson Co TX Western District Census page 47 PO Brazos Bossom (Bottom?) 7-14-1870 Stamped page 219 Family 314-415 Black Joseph L age 50 M W Physician 700 324 South Carolina (b abt 1820) Elisabeth age 36 F W Keeps house Georgia (b abt 1834) Sarah H age 20 F W at home Texas (b abt 1850) Lydia age 17 F W at home Texas (b abt 1853) Virgil B age 14 M W at home Texas (b abt 1856) John W age 12 M W At home Texas (b abt 1858) Charles A age 11 M W at home Texas (b abt 1859) (to young to be your Charlie however) Sallie R age 9 F W at home Texas (b abt 1861) Mary age 6 F W at home Texas (b abt 1864) Cerilla age 1 F W at home Texas (b abt 1869)
Apparently Virgil is a half sister to Lydia Virgil adopted a little boy named Charlie Franklin Black who's mother was Melinda Cash Mixon Charlie was possibly a Massengil at birth and that is what we are trying to determine Because Charlie was born in 2-25-1873 but is not with Virgil and Malinda in 1900 Tyler Co TX He married in 9-5-1892 to Tinnie Culpepper in Tyler Co TX.
WE are seeking Charlie's fathers real name
and are hoping someone in the Black/Colcoate Family might have information.
We cant find Joseph and family after 1870 and Charlie in the 1880 census under Black nor can we find his mother Melinda or his adopted father Virgil B Black.
I did find Lydia his half sister but after 1880 i lose her as well.
Debra LaMel TX Any clues would be appreciated at all!
