Hi Jennifer:
I'm happy to know somebody else in the family has researched our ancestors! I'm the only one who's done it in my 'clan' to speak. I started in 1999. Adolphus was a real character, that's for sure! Have you read the publication of his diaries? "Hurrah for Texas" is the title. A great read & it gives a real insight into the man. One thing I've never been able to find is his brother. He's on a TX census with Adolphus, but I think he must have died in the Mexican War.
Are you in CA? Of our TX relatives, my father was the only one who settled in CA. That's because he married my "Yankee" she used to say, during WW 2. His parents did come out here about 1949 & died here.
I've been to Mariposa many years ago. Cute little town. Other than being born in TX, I've never been back as an adult. Even though I have 2nd cousins living there. I, too, would like to go back there.
Take care,
