Tom:Welcome to the Rusk County researchers who are very frustrated.I have been working on the Jacobs/Holleman line for years and have not found George Jacobs and Mary Jane Roberts in 1850.Their daughter and son married Holleman children of Green Wilson Holleman.I also haven't found Mary Jane Roberts Jacobs mother, who word has it never lived far from her daughter.Mrs. Martha Guinn Roberts married John S. Crow in 1847 and also doesn't show up on the 1850 census.I did find a Genforum note that the Crow family took at trip to GA and John S. Crow died coming back in Louisiana.This may be why I can't find my people but I think it is very likely that a large segment of the Rusk County families were never counted.
I suggest you look at the Rusk County Agricultural Census for them.That is how I found "some" mention of George W. Jacobs.He shows up on 1847-1856 Ag. Census so I know he lived there.Don't you hate when you know where ancesters were but can't find documentation.
I do have info on Holleman line though it is not complete. I am presently trying to clear up what I believe was another researchers error on Hiram Holleman.He shows that Hiram B. Holleman married Martha E. Jacobs (not mine one born in 1833).I have seen some note that Hiram B. Holleman married a Martha E. (Epps) Gill.Do you know the correct answer for this?
My line is Martha E. Jacobs married Josiah John Holleman III and William H. Jacobs married Matilda Caroline Holleman.I have plenty of info on their descendents.Josiah and Martha ended up in Corsicana and William H. and Matilda C. ended up in Howard County, AR.Matilda outlived William H. and later moved with children back to West Texas.Be glad to correspond with you.This is my mother-in-laws family.
