Augustus & Fayette Thomas, Marshall, TX - 1900
I'm hoping to find another sign of two brothers, Augustus and Fayette Thomas. Have seen them only once in the 1900 Census, Pct. 3, Harrison Co., TX as the two oldest sons of my great great grandfather's sister, Mary Hall, where they are listed as step sons to Mary N. and George Hall. In 1900 Augustus was 16 and Fayette 13 years old.
They disappear after then and I've been unable to find any sign of them. Since they were male it's unlikely that their surname changed.
Their mother Mary's maiden name was Lampkins and she married George Hall on Sept. 22, 1895 in Harrison County, TX.
Perhaps the two brothers might be seen somewhere else with children bearing family names? The brothers' grandfather was Augustine Lampkins per Mary's Death Certificate. Mary's mother was Eliza Norris.
In the 1900 census there are also three other children in the house all with the surname HALL. You'll see also there Eliza Norres (sp) who was my great great great grandmother. Correct spelling is Norris.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have other family info if that would help.
