Thomas Ephraim Hennington SC/MS/TX LA?

Thomas Ephraim Hennington SC/MS/TX LA?

Surnames: Hennington, Graham, Harrell, King, Webb
I am looking for information on Thomas Ephraim Hennington d. 1870's in Jasper County, TX. He appears to have been born in SC, wife (Rachel and Graham) and daughters were born in Mississippi. I have a lot of references to him when he was in the Jasper county area, including some of the things he did in Jasper as the county was being organized and settled. I am hoping to find out about his family, perhaps his parents or siblings.

I am not sure what part of MS he was in before heading to TX. My interest in him is a little different, I think. I have been researching some Harrells and Kings who lived in Jasper in the 1840's to 1870's. One of the Harrell's have his name as Ephraim Harrell. Ephraim (m. Anna or Elana Webb) has a son named Thomas Hennington Harrell. In addition, there is some word of mouth information that a Joseph Harrell in Jasper county at the same time had a mother who's name was Rachel Hennington. After the Civil War, Joseph's widow and daughter moved to Calcasieu Parish, LA where she stayed with a sister. Nearby were Hennington's who were also from Mississippi and SC. Joseph lived with the Kings and his sister or half sister Laurena Harrell King in Jasper county in th 1850 census. Finally, there are quite places where the Kings, Harrells, Hennington's, Smith, and other names vouched for character, signed as bondsmen, or other type of activities. One included a couple thousand bond co-signed by Thomas, for William King to be the county Treasurer.

Anybody have thoughts or insights into this family?

Hello, I'm Clifford N. Good
Thomas Ephraim Hennington was the father to Julia Ann Hennington who married one of my ancestors. Thomas and Rachael had the following children besides Julia Ann. Levisa, Emily, and Adaline. These are the only children I know of. My ancestor met Julia Ann in La. My relatives came to Texas in 1833 and settled in Jasper Co, Tx. They had leagues of land from Spanish Government. Hannibal was an older man when he married Julia Ann. Julia Ann is buried in LaVaca County, Tx in Oakgrove Cemetery. She died on April 24 1891. Have been looking for her sons for months now. Also a grandchild who was living with her. Any info about this family write back. Cliff
