John, thanks so much for your reply.Yes, I know what all the records say.
But, son of Bud said different.A.W. Bud was born per his son on February 17, 1851 Panola Co. Tx, and died April 1925 in Navarro Co., 5 miles from Bloominggrove. No marker.
Also, James Henry and Nancy had their last child, Mary Charlotte Gary on Jul 11, 1850.She married William David Carrico.It might be possible for Nancy to be Bud's mother, but doubt he would have lived back then as he would have been born early.
The family said Harvey was 14 when Bud was born.I'm trying to find resources to prove Harvey's birth.Tombstone shows Oct. 13, 1838/d Oct. 26, 1897, Panola Co., which would be the 12 you mention.1850 census shows age 11; but 1870 census shows 33.So, who knows? Uncle David, who said Harvey was his grandfather and remembered well when his dad died, was of poor eyesight when he went to the cemetery to see Harvey N's grave.He could not be sure if it was 1838 (as all indicates) or l836, which would make the 14.
Records also show a child, probably a daughter, born to James Henry and Nancy ca 1835 who must have died if existed.
I have been unable to find Leroy, but have found a Leroy in Confederate War - have written for his military record as could not find any pension application (which would have given more data).
