Re: Archibald, family - Brazoria TX

If you were trying to find them in census index you would have to use a wildcard search since the name is badly mis-spelled in the index:

Name: Abbe Archuleta (your Abraham)

Home in 1900: Justice Precinct 1, Brazoria, Texas
Age: 9
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1891
BirthPlace: Texas
Relationship to head-of-house: Son
Father's name: Davy (this may be Dan)
Mother's name: Jane
Race: Black

Household Members: Name Age
Davy Archuleta 45
Jane Archuleta 40
Savina Archuleta 16
America Archuleta 15
Mary Archuleta 12
Ida Archuleta 10
Abbe Archuleta 9

Looking at the actual record and cross-checked with the Draft Registration and 1910 - this seems to be the correct family.

In 1910 the name is still mis-spelled in the index:

Name: Dan Archibal
[Dan Arcguvak]
Age in 1910: 51
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1859
BirthPlace: Texas
Relation to Head of House: Head
Father's Birth Place: Texas
Mother's Birth Place: Alabama
Spouses's Name: Jane
Home in 1910: Justice Precinct 2, Brazoria, Texas
Marital Status: Married
Race: Black
[Colored]
Gender: Male

Household Members: Name Age
Dan Archibal 51
Jane Archibal 50
Antony Davis 7 - grandson
Sarah J White 4 - granddaughter

Going back in time 1800 - the family was not in Brazoria:

Name: Dan Archable
Home in 1880: Precinct 3, Fort Bend, Texas
Age: 22
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1858
BirthPlace: Texas
Relation to head-of-household: Self
Spouses's Name: Jane
Occupation: Work On Farm
Marital status: Married
Race: Black
Gender: Male

Household Members: Name Age
Dan Archable 22
Jane Archable 18
Martha Archable 9M daughter

Since you are looking for other related family members - and Abraham had a bunch of sisters, you will need to track down who they married. The 1910 census gives a clue - since the grandchildren are surnamed DAVIS and WHITE.

Please let us know if this is the type of information you were seeking.
