James Orrick got title on 1824, died in 1837. 177 ac near west bank of the Brazos.
James ORRICK Was married to Elizabeth Orrick who then married Thomas M. HUGHES.
In 1846 there is a conflict between Thomas M. HUGHES and OLIVER JONES over the land.
I heard James was a mail carrier.
If anyone traces these families, or this property, I'd be interested in chatting.
