Kathryn: Here are my notes etc on Wm. Wallace Jr. b. Aug 3, 1867 -in Wood Co. in 1870 age 2 with his parents.( there is a gap of about 6 years between his birth and his older sister Loucinda because his father was away fighting in the Civil War) -in Cooke Co. in 1880 age 12 with his parents(Gwens notes say Coke Co. but I think it must be Cooke) -in 1910 in Upshur Co. with his wife "Sallie"(Sarah Frances) and 4 of their children. Upshur is about 30 miles N of Longview TX (the next County E of Wood Co) -still in Upshur Co. in 1920. Their oldest girl Minnie is gone (probably married) the otherthree are there. I have 6 children Harold, Ray, Charles francis, Minnie, Dixie, & Nannie I can give you more on them if you contact me by e mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) Wm.W.'s father is Charles Bingley b. March 6, 1840 here are his notes: -married Elizabeth Cox and they had 11 children. -served in the Civil War with the 14th Texas Cavalry on the Confederate side and earned a Confederate pension. -in Smith Co. age 10 in 1850, Wood Co. age 20 with his mother in 1860 (W.W. died in 1859), in Wood Co. in 1870 (listed as a Sawyer) with his wife and 3 children, in Coke Co. in 1880(Gwens notes say Coke Co. but I wonder if it was Cooke Co.) with his wife and 5 children their oldest girl was gone (probably married) and a daughter born in 1875 was gone (probably died).A younger brother Joseph B. is with them age 31. -Coke Co. is about 20 miles N of San Angelo in West Texas. The Comanche Indian threat was virtually extinguished by the mid 1870's and this opened up a lot of the West Texas Panhandle to settlers and land was relatively cheap. The tributaries to The Brazos River provided water and there was grass for cattle. It seems quite likely that Charles acquired land in Coke Co. homesteaded, raised a large family. Why he and his wife and the 3 youngest returned to Hunt Co. about 1900 is not clear. They must have retained some interests in Hunt Co. to do so. His brothers were in Hunt Co. through the 1880's so I guess it would have been relatively easy to reestablish.Apparently at least one of the older children stayed in West Texas because in 1910 he and Elizabeth were in Paducah,Cottle Co. with their son James Madison. Paducah is about 100 miles N of Coke Co. in the Panhandle. -Cooke Co. is straight N of Ft. Worth about 60-70 miles, I wonder what they would be doing there? -in 1900 they are back in Hunt Co. ages 60 & 55 and the 3 youngest children are with them as is brother Joseph -in 1910 they are away over in Cottle Co. near Paducah ages 70 & 66 and with one of their sons James M.and a boarder. Cottle Co. is about 70 -80 miles NNE of Lubbock TX -there were other McGuffins in West Texas about the time Charles located in Coke Co. They were Gwen Cambells ancestors and they were firmly established in Eden, Concho Co. which is about 30-40 miles SE of Coke Co. on the other side of San Angelo. That line started from S. Carolina with Wm. Wallace Sr. Contact me by e mail and I'll send you what i have on him. Born in Ireland/Scotland? in 1804.
