Lee, It was C.C. Ishmael, son of Charles Casswell Ishmael that married Sarah Gilliam in Limestone County.He had formerly been married to Lovina Clendening and they were on the 1870 Hopkins Co. Census.
Charles Casswell Ishmael was formerly married to Fanny__________in Arkansas, at least she is thought to have died in Arkansas from an outbreak of the plague before 1860.
Charles Casswell Ishmael is a widower in 1860 in Hopkins Co. Tx.He
C.C. Ishmael m L. A. Clendening 5/11/1870 (this is son of our Charles Casswell Ishmael and first wife Fanny.Fannie died in Arkansas, believed to be from an outbreak of plague. C. C. Ishmael, next married Sarah Gilliam in Limestone Co. (I don't have the date right now) Charles Casswell, Sr. m. Sarah Martin 3/8/1863. She was b. abt 1845, and he was much older. I'm investigating whether or not she was the daughter of Jonathan Martin , b. abt 1820 Tarrent Co. Tx, first wife unknown, and had two children: l.Sarah Ann Martin 2.Drucilla Martin They were on the 1850 Rusk Co. Tx census, and I'm trying to find them in 1860.Their father married a Nancy Irwin(or Erwin) and had children, and died by 1870.
I wonder if she is the same Sarah Martin that married Chas Caswell Ishmael, and wonder if the Drucilla Posey is her sister that is living next door to Chas and Sarah Ishmael on the 1870 Hopkins Co. Census.
I know Ken Rorie, and I gave him that wrong information.
