I have a John Sumner Lansdale, b. abt 1845 in Mississippi, and am trying to identify his parents and siblings.
In 1880, he is in Collin Co., TX with his wife, Helen Perkins, and their 3 kids.Also in Texas, but in Upshur Co. is your Isaac, who is also born in MS.Am wondering if they are related?I did a search to find all Lansdales in Texas in 1880 who were born in MS and my John and your Isaac are the only ones who show up.In fact, they are the only Lansdales in Texas in 1880.
Your Isaac's parents were born in SC and GA, and my John's were both born in KY, so obviously they are not brothers, but maybe cousins?Here's the 1880 data if you don't have it:
