LEWIS, Sampson & Patsy in TX?
Is anyone out there doing any research or has access to records for Clarksville, Texas in Red River County? This was the place of residence for my great-great grandparents, Patsy (Patcy or Patie) and Sampson Lewis at the the time of emancipation. I have found my gg-grandmother on the 1900 census, but nothing prior to or after that particular census.
There were, I believe, five children: Edmund (my g-grandfather); Viney and Kate (Katie); possibly an Edward; and the other name is unknown. I am really interested in knowing their last slaveowner, and deeds of sale, etc., and from there I might have better luck working my way backwards for information.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I've really hit that proverbial brick wall!
