I am looking for information on a L.B. Green(e) based on the 1880 Eastland Co., Tx census who married a N.C.LNU. L.B. was born about 1844 in Tn and his wife was born about 1845 in Al. The census stated that they had three children; F.L. c1870, M.M. c1874, and M.O. c1877.

I have been looking for the parents of a Minnie Mae(May) Green born July 7, 1875 in Texas died July 7, 1915 in Boyd, Wise Co., Tx. She married a Dr. William Crawford Huddleston. I have had no luck with finding any information on Minnie in Wise County so I used an alternate spelling of her last name and came across this census in Eastland County, which isn't far from Wise. I found Minnie in a 1910 Census with her husband in Wise County, Tx and it states that her parents were born in Tn and Al.

Does anyone have any info on this family. I believe this L.B. Green(e) is Leonidas Bluford Green(e) born Febuary 10, 1844 in Roane Co., Tn. He was the son of Austin Letheridge Greene (1811-1903) Roane County clerk and Cordelia "Delia" Crow (1815-1849). Married a Calisty LNU. This Leonidas had a daughter named Minnie born very close to the time the Minnie I am searching for was.

Please help

I am not related and read the queries on this link. You may have the right track. Minnie is buried in the Boyd Cemetery per the Wise county website. Have you obtained her death certificate to see if her parent’s names are on it ? They should be.

I think Calista/Calisty was a Stephens/Stevens.

Wm C, Minnie M and Thelma were in 1900 Denton county census, married 2 years. Listed as HUDDLESON. Minnie’s father TN, mother AL in that record also; both were teaching school. Thelma born 2/1899; Minnie 7/1875, Wm C 11/1874.

The Green/Greene’s you mention are in the 1900 Wise county census with daughter Maud born 1877 who fit’s a daughter “M O“ from 1880 record.

Who is this - Dana ROGERS 1132 Airline Dr. Apt. # 3, Grapevine, TX, 76051, United States of America ? Submitted file to LDS on Leonidas Bluford Green.

Links to Eastland cemetery indexes on this website.

Sixty miles north of the geographic center of the State of Texas and 125 miles northwest of the center of population, it is situated on the divide between the Clear Fork of the Brazos River and the Leon River with part of the drainage going to each stream. The city rests on a slight elevation which accounts for the absence of unhealthy lowlands.

In 1879 a Baptist preacher by the name of Stevens established a community -- a tiny western trading post, which later developed into a little town with a church, a school, a store, and a post office located between two large clay hills about a mile west of the present city limits of Cisco. It came to be known as Red Gap, a riot of colorful western action, with all the cow range trimmings.

Red Gap attracted some 350 people and it boasted six saloons. In 1879 Rev. C. G. Stevens established the first post office at a pass way in the hills. The building was of logs and had two stories, of three rooms. Several weeks later a floorless log schoolhouse, with but one small window, was built. Mrs. Colistie Green, one of the few pioneers who had settled there, voluntarily agreed to teach the school, at a wage of one dollar for each student who enrolled.

Name: C. G. Stephens Home in 1880: Precinct 6, Eastland, Texas Age: 66 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1814 Birth Place: Georgia Relation to head-of-household: Self Spouses's Name: C. V. Father's birthplace: SC Mother's birthplace: GA Occupation: Post Master Wife born GA.

Could C G Stevens/Stephens be Calista’s father ?

Par for the course and darn to enumerators for not following the guidelines. Full names were to be used.…Stevens/Stephens family not found in 1870 record. C N or N C “Calista” should be married by 1870 to L B Green and they are not found either with their son.
