I have a Robert Boone Dikes Robert Boone Dikes
6 Dec 1870 in Texas
died in Napa California
His father was William Dikes born 1836/37 Texas and his mother with a very long pedigree was Abigail Johnson.
It appears William Dikes died before 1880 because Abigail is a widow with all the kids in the 1880 census.
Robert was my great grandfather's brother Charles Bell Dikes.
I am in the process of hiring an expert to find the father's records as I think he dies in the Civil War.
