Re: [TX] Robert/Bob and Catherine Lacy /Tacy BORN IN TEXAS

Hi,

Fist this is the only Bob Lacy in 1870 in Harrison County>>

1870 United States Federal Census

Name: Bob Lacy
Estimated birth year: abt 1851
Age in 1870: 19
Birthplace: Virginia
Home in 1870: Precinct 3, Harrison, Texas
Family and neighbors: View Results
Race: Colored (Black)
Gender: Male

He is listed as living with a Salley Lacy age 43 and born in Virginia. Others in the household are Bette age 8, Jerry age 6, Liza age 11, Rose age 8, Clara age 5, Jake age 3 and Jim age 1. All the with the last name of Lacy.

Also, I believe this 1870 Bob Lacy is your Bob because I found the same people living around him in 1880

1900 United States Federal Census

Name: Raleert Tacy

Birthplace: Texas
Relationship to head-of-house: Head

Raleert Tacy 47
Catherine Tacy 47
Liddick B Tacy 16
Sydney Tacy 13 (23) born 1876 / Married with 1 child
Monora A Tacy 7

The age listed is wrong for Sydney. On the census image, you can clearly see that he was born 1876 which puts him at the age of about 23. It also states that he is Married with one Child

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Here is Sydney listed again in the 1900 census. The census where he was listed in his parents house was done on June 8th of 1900. This census where he is listed with his wife was done on the June 11th 1900. So he must have been visiting with his parents on the 8th.

It appears here that the wife of Sydney is living with her parents and she is widowed. She is using the last name of Williams. But what is interesting is that the word Williams appears to have a line drawn through it on the census image.

Here is one that I thought was interesting. This is a death listing for a Artelia Stotts. Could this be original Artella Lacy, wife of Sydney? If so, that would mean she lived to be almost a 100 years old.
