Being "new" is not a problem! There are several experienced subscribers who "cruise" Texas County Bulletin Boards looking for people in need of assistance. You simply need to ask! In 1860 MO-Macon-Russell-Image 15 find Joseph Peppin(30), Mary(28), Sarah E.(10), William T.(5), James L.(3), and Stephen(8/12). Evidently Joseph died early 'cause Mary remarried Thomas S. Epperly and they moved to San Luis Obispo, CA for 1870 census. James and William Pippin/Peppin accompanied their mother. Guessing Stephen died and Sarah married 'cause they were not with their mother? William T. Pippin/Peppin remained in California but James accompanied his family back to Texas. The family must have had wanderlust? Thomas S. Epperly and Mary Epperly died in Oregon 5 Aug 1896 and 30 Dec 1889, respectively.
