I am searching for Coatie Drumgould, alledgedly born in Collins County TX about 1852. She married Joe Bower/s. Both are said to have been white. She is the mother of Evangelist Bowers Smith buried in Prairie Point Cemetery, Chico TX with her husband, A.F. (Alex/Alexander French) Smith and their infant son Clyde.
On one census indicates Coatie was born in Miss, fahter in Al and Mother in Al.
Also I found the following I excerpted info from a Civil War site:
