I hope this helps to clear up the confusion about who John Wesley Rasberry's father is.
1860 Census Washington County, Texas PgLineDW FMNameAge SexOccup.Birth 197A34737 737A. (Allen) RASBERRY36 MFarmerTN Elizabeth (Weatherford) 30 FTN John W. (Wesley) 12 MTN William (Jasper) 10 MTN 198A11747 747John RASBERRY70MFarmerTN Lucinda25FTN N.27MTN Angelina21FTN Mary16FAK I don't know if these are John's children or Grandchildren as someone suggested.They were living with him at this time.
These are the only Rasberrys in Washington Co., Texas in 1860 Census.The things in parenthesis were not in the Census, I added them from other records.There was also a Hazelwood family in this Census. 197B37745 745M. HAZELWOOD40FFarmerTN Nancy11 FTN Melinda9FTX William7MTX
Marriages in Washington County, Texas: Lucinda Rasberry m. Marion Tomme 11-19-1861 Angelina Rasberry m. Dennis Lyan 2-28-1862 Mary Rasberry m. Joseph Cleveland 6-20-1861 L.L. Rasberry m. Margaret C. Gates 12-23-1859 E.S. Rasberry m. John H. Rushing 4-12-1869 Ellen M. Rasberry m. Sam Green 12-27-1880 John W. Rasberry m. M. J. Hazelwood 12-26-1873 John Rasberry m. Josephine "Josey" Thompson 10-26-1868 (could this be John W. also?) William Jasper Rasberry m. Kate Green 10-4-1871 (She was Mrs. Green with three children.Diane Scheller of this Forum gives her maiden name as Cathanne Alderson.)
I also found a Postmasters Index for Texas and there were a few Rasberrys and it gives the Counties and that is all. Rasberry, Leonidas L. (Bastrop) Could this be the L.L. in the marriage list? Rasbury, Eva K. (Fannin) Rasbury, J. F. (Smith) Rasbury Jesse F. (Smith) Some of you asked about a Jesse, is this the one?
My line is: John, Allen, William Jasper, William Allen, Bernice Irene Rasberry, she married Rufus Burney Perry and they are my parents.
I hope this helps, if it doesn't tie into your line let me know. If someone could help me, I would love to know more about John and his children. How does John H. tie in to this line?Looking forward to hearing from you.Gerald
