I am looking for parents and/or siblings to my husband's great grandfather, Joseph Francis PATE. The Family Bible states that he was born in Anderson County. I have not found him in the 1870 census. He may be the Joseph F. PATE listed as a 13 year old adopted son of Robert Harris in the 1880 Grayson County TX Census. I have a copy of his death certificate but his son (who was the informant) did not know Joseph's parents' names.
Joe Pate married Mattie Barrington in Williamson County TX in 1887. He was in Bell County TX between 1888 and 1891. He then was in Indian Territory and Oklahoma until he died in 1921.
Thanks for any help that can be provided.
