In 1870, Mathias PETERS(31) left his wife Sarah A. (26) and their children in Kentucky and traveled to Hopkins Co., Texas with his brother (my ancestor) James Samuel PETERS (17) to establish a home. Sarah A. and the children joined him later. I'm trying to verify my guess that the parents of Mathias and James are Abraham & Ann PETERS of Hardin County.
As far as I know, in 1870, the children of Mathias and Sarah A. would have been:
- Mary B. (6)
- Eliz. A. (5)
- James M. (3)
