FYI! Several Texas Counties do not have same-named cities/towns within their borders. Typical: Austin, Houston, Rusk, Tyler, Crockett, Sherman, and perhaps a couple of others? The Hookers were residing in Houston County vs the City of Houston in Harris County. Too, it was 1870 census that enumerated "Tennisse", Samuel, and William with A J and Mary Bonner. Via corrections you've submitted earlier, I am aware of your long-term research of this family. Did you consider 1850 TX-Rusk-Rusk-Image 54 as valid? Age disparity aside, the geography fits?
