Second Generation

2. Thomas Gaston (Tom) Cameron 2-4,7-14 was born in Aug 1877 in Texas. He appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas. He appeared in the census in 1910 in Cherokee County, Texas. He appeared in the census in 1920 in Cherokee County, Texas. He appeared in the census in 1930 in Cherokee County, Texas. He died on 9 Sep 1960 in Tyler, Smith, Texas. He was buried in Cherokee County, Texas - Emmaus Cem.
Thomas' birth year is a question. We have

Aug 1880 - 1900 census
1882/83 - 1910 census (age 27)
1877/78 - 1920 census (age 42)
1876/77 - 1930 census (age 53)
Aug 1877 - death certificate

He isn't listed on the 1880, but it looks like 1877 wins.

Thomas' death record gives us his parents:

Thomas Gaston (Tom) Cameron and Leora Stewart were married on 19 Aug 1897 in Cherokee County, Texas.

3. Leora Stewart 2,3,7-9,13,14 was born between 1880 and 1883 in Texas. She appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1910 in Cherokee County, Texas. She died on 20 Feb 1920 in Cherokee County, Texas (prob). She appeared in the census in 1920 in Cherokee County, Texas. She was buried in Cherokee County, Texas - Emmaus Cem.
We have these birth years on these records:

1883 (Jan 1883) - 1900 census
1883 (age 27) -1910 census
1879 (age 41) - 1920 Census
1876 (Tombstone)

I can't find her on the 1880. I'm inclined to think 1883.

He appeared in the census in 1920 in Cherokee County, Texas. He appeared in the census on 2 Jul 1937 in Troup, Smith, Texas. He was buried in Concord, Cherokee, Texas - Concord Cem.

Cameron, Roscoe J. 8-4-1908 d. 7-2-1937

Camron, James S. 9-20-1842 d. 7-11-1927 (Pvt Co C 10 Ala Cavalry CSA) James (Jim) Cameron and Elizabeth Hamilton were married on 6 Jun 1869 in Lincoln County, Tennessee.

5. Elizabeth Hamilton 10,25-27,29-31 was born in 1844 in Tennessee. She appeared in the census in 1880 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1910 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1920 in Cherokee County, Texas. She died in 1927 in Texas (prob). She was buried in Cherokee County, Texas - Emmaus Cem.
Elizabeth's tombstone says she was born in 1844.
1880 Census: 1854
1900 Census: 1852
1910 Census: 1856
1920 Census: 1856 James (Jim) Cameron and Elizabeth Hamilton had the following children:

i. Clara Cameron 26,32-40 was born on 20 Feb 1870 in Texas. She appeared in the census in 1880 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1910 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1920 in Rusk County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1930 in Rusk County, Texas. She died on 4 Feb 1947 in Henderson, Rusk, Texas. She was buried in New Salem, Rusk, Texas - New Salem Cem.
"Rusk, Texas" in the LDS Family Records Texas Marriages collection could be Rusk County, Texas, or Rusk, Cherokee, Texas. Mapquest.com tells me it is about 12 miles from Rusk, Cherokee, Texas to the Rusk County line. I'm assuming it is Rusk County for all, but I'm using "Rusk County, Texas (TexMar)" for the marriage place.

Ancestry.com's Texas Marriages has this record:
Walton Weatherford to Clara Bundrick, 13 Mar 1898, Walker Co.
which doesn't make sense. Huntsville, the county seat of Walker County, is 100 miles south of Rusk, Cherokee, Texas.


Texas Deaths, 1890-1976 has:

==========

In the 1910 census we have:

Rena: 9 (1900/01)
May: 8 (1901/02)
Iva: 1 and 2/12 (1909)

On other records we have:

Rena: 08 Apr 1896. (Texas Deaths)
May: 22 Jan, 1900 (Find-a-Grave)
Ivin: 27 Oct 1906 (Find-a-Grave, SSDI, Texas Deaths)

Walter and Clara were supposed to have married 3 Apr 1898. There is just one child listed in 1900, Dreabon, b. Jan 1899, which is almost exactly 9 months after the wedding.

So, we have some possibilities;

1) The wedding was earlier.

2) The 1910 census is right and the other records are wrong.

3) Rena was born out of wedlock, not listed in 1900 out of shame. They lied about her age in 1910, too. When she died the truth came out. That means Walter and Clara were living in sin, in a small, conservative part of Texas in the very late 1890's, for at least two years. That doesn't seem very likely to me. The fact Ivin's death record is off by 3 years - he was born well within wedlock - hints that not all death records are accurate.

I'm going to go with the birth years on the 1910 census.
ii. Paralee Cameron26,41 was born on 26 Feb 1872 in Texas. She appeared in the census in 1880 in Cherokee County, Texas. She died on 26 Mar 1964 in Jacksonville, Cherokee, Texas. She was buried in Cherokee County, Texas - Emmaus Cem.
Texas Deaths, 1890-1976 has:

Name: Paralee Johnston
Death: 26 Mar 1964, Jacksonville, Cherokee, Texas
Birth: 26 Feb 1872, Texas
Marital Status: Widowed
Father: Jim Cameron
Mother: Elizabeth Hamilton
Occupation: Housewife
Place of Residence: Troup, Cherokee, Texas
Cemetery: New Emmaus, Cherokee, Texas
2 iii. Thomas Gaston (Tom) Cameron .
iv. Melvin Cameron25,29 was born in Jan 1887 in Texas. He appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas.
1910, Justice Precinct 5, Cherokee, Texas:

Cameron, Melven, head, 24, La, Tenn, Tenn
Cameron, Belle, wife, 22, La, La, La
Cameron, Alton, son, 4, Tex, La, La
Cameron, Glaydis, dau, 2, 1908, Tex, La, La

They ahve been married for 5 years. Melvin's birth state really does look like "Louisiana".

Melvin and Belle are in HH 189. His parents, James and Elizabeth, are in HH 190.

6. Joseph W (Joe) Stewart 14,42-47 was born in 1857/58 in Texas. He appeared in the census in 1860 in Rusk, Cherokee, Texas. He appeared in the census in 1870 in Cherokee County, Texas. He appeared in the census in 1880 in Cherokee County, Texas. He was also known as Joel in 1880. He appeared in the census in 1900 in Cherokee County, Texas. He died on 8 Mar 1906 in Texas. He was buried in Concord, Cherokee, Texas - Concord Cem.
See Joseph's mother, Mary, for the 1880 census.


As of July 2011, the only proof I have that these are Leora's parents are a statement by a Robert Reid on several Ancestry boards, saying Leora was his great grandmother, and her parents were Joseph and Euginia. The fact that in 1900 Thomas and Leora are in HH 203, Joseph and Euginia are in HH 206, and that Joseph and Euginia are the only Stewarts in JP 5 helps bolster the case, but I would dearly love to see a couple of obituaries mentioning siblings.

The 1900 census says he was born Apr 1860; Find-a-Grave entry says Nov 30, 1857.


1900, Justice Precinct 5, Cherokee, Texas:

Stewart, Joe W, head, Apr 1860, 40, Tex, Tex, Tex

Joseph and Eugenia were married in Cherokee County and were still there in 1900. I'm assuming th children were born there, but for all I know Eugenia took the train to Dallas for each birth.

He is Fred in 1900, Frazier in 1910. He is born Sep 1890 in the 1900 census, 1 Sep 1891 on his 1917 WW I Draft card.

There is a birth record for a lady born in 1933 to Frazier Stewart and Rene Ida Weatherford in Rusk County. That might be our Frazier, but it might not.


His death certificate either has the wrong age, or the wrong parents.

Harvey was 18 at first marriage, Marzell 16.

Harvey's age is off by 5 years here; he was born in 1898 on the 1900 and 1910 census. He's single and living with his sister and her husband in 1920. I'm estimating the marriage as 9 years before 1930.

See brother-in-law Hiram C. Brown, husband of Mina, for the 1920 census entry.


1930, Precinct 5, Cherokee, Texas:

Stewart, Robert L, head, 26, Tex, Tex, Tex, farmer
Stewart, Effie P, wife, 21, Tex, Tex, Tex

Robert L was 18 at first marriage, Effie 18. Either Effie is his second wife, or the enumerator missed his stroke.



Fourth Generation

12. James Stewart 78 was born between 1816 and 1819 in Kentucky. He appeared in the census in 1850 in Tishomingo County, Mississippi.
His son Joseph says his father was born in Tennessee on th 1880.

Joseph was b. 1857/58 and Mary is alone in 1860; I'm assuming James died somewhere in that time span.

1850, Southern Division, Tishomingo, Mississippi:

Stuart, James, 32, Ky
Stuart, Mary E, 29, SC
Stuart, Nancy C, 10, Ala
Stuart, Jane M, 7, Ala
Stuart, William H, 6, Ala
Stuart, Sarah A, 1, Miss
Stuart, John W, 4, Miss James Stewart and Mary E. (Unknown) were married between 1836 and 1839.

13. Mary E. (Unknown) 45-47,78,79 was born on 15 Nov 1820 in South Carolina. She appeared in the census in 1850 in Tishomingo County, Mississippi. She appeared in the census in 1860 in Rusk, Cherokee, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1870 in Cherokee County, Texas. She appeared in the census in 1880 in Cherokee County, Texas. She died on 10 Dec 1885 in Cherokee County, Texas (prob). She was buried in Concord, Cherokee, Texas - Concord Cem.
1860, Rusk, Cherokee, Texas:

Stewart, Mary E, 40, SC
Stewart, Nancy C, 21, Ala
Stewart, Mary J, 14, Ala
Stewart, Wm H, 16, Ala
Stewart, John W, 14, Miss
Stewart, Sarah A, 12, Miss
Stewart, Martha A, 9, Miss
Stewart, Joseph W, 3, Tex

Comparing this to 1850, it seems clear Mary J there should be 17, not 14. It is a clear "14" on the image, but she is out of order, and it would be tough to have twins born in two states. The 1850 is in the note with husband James.


1870, Beat 5, Cherokee County, Texas:

Stewart, Mary E, 49, NC, keeping house
Stewart, Joseph, 12, Tex, works on farm


1880, Cherokee County, Texas:

Stuart, Mary, 59, head, Widowed, SC, SC, SC
Stuart, Joel, 23, son, Tex, Tenn, SC, Farmer
Stuart, Jenia, 14, wife, Tex, Ireland, Ireland
