Dabbs of VA, and Mount Pleasant, TX.
I am searching for the Dabbs family who may have come from Virginia and migrated to Texas. I have located a lot of the later generations but....I cannot locate Aaron Dabbs. He would have been born in either VA, TN, TX, or even MS around 1830 or so. He married a Caroline Upchurch, listed in the 1870 census for Mount Pleasant, Tx., but Aaron is not there. Caroline apparently remarried hince the Upchurch name. I have heard mention of the Upchurch connection and a Littlejohn connection. This Dabbs family remained in the areas of De Kalb, Mount Pleasant, Morris, Titus, Omaha, and Paris. As a matter of fact there was mention of a Littlejohn tale in De Kalb. It went something like this: The neighbor of Lovida Dabbs was a man by the name of Littlejohn. While working in his fields he would make a habit of wistling. Well Littlejohn died and the neighbors could still hear him whistling for years afterwards. I think these families may have been related somehow...Anyone with Dabbs info please contact me.
