Anyone working on Hiram Jones, in 1850 Cherokee census, in 1860 Angelina County Census, please contact me. Hiram came to Texas from Kentucky (or ILL and IND, both are mentioned as birth site) about 1836-1839. Wife was Nancy in 1850, Sarah in 1860. Wife may have been a Conaway, also said to be Indian. Children were William, Jane, Catherine, Martha (b. 1840), A.Jackson, Rebecca, Mary.
Also looking for a missing Mr. Harden, who married Hiram's daughter Martha abt 1856, left town, and never returned, leaving Martha with a 4 year old boy and pregnant with second son. Sons are named Hiram "Buck" and Will.
Martha Jones Harden then married William Heffernan in Angelina County in 1861.
