Ann Bowman Mangum, Brummett, Winters, Witter - Seeking information on Nathaniel Tomas Mangum (born about 1846, MS), married first in 1868 Atascosa Co, TX to Josephine Brummett (2 Mar 1855, TX, d. 25 May 1882, buried Brummett Cem, Frio Co, TX). He married second in 1883 Frio County to Annie Winters. The second record is from a marriage record extract. Another researcher and I believe that the brides last name should have Witter. Nathaniel and wife Nancy are listed on the 1900 and 1910 census records for Zavala County. Nathaniel was not located in 1920 so likely died between 1910 and 1920 possibly in Zavala County. Does anyone have any information to prove or disprove who Nathaniel Tomas Mangum's second wife was?

Michael K. Oden Oden, Allbritton, Smith, Collins, Mclauflin(Mclaughlin) - My father is Julius Van Oden His father was A.A. Oden (Allie Adine?)(husband of Ella Allbritton), his father was Timothy S. Oden(husband of Margaret Smith), his father was Aaron Louis Oden (founder of Frio Town 1871)(husband of Mahala Collins. William Mclauflin was a witness at the wedding of Timothy Oden and Margaret Smith in Atascosa 04/22/1861. My father was told by his eldest sister Lucile before she died that we had an ancestor named Mclaughlin, originally from Sheffield England. I'm thinking maybe William Mclauflin is the maternal grandfather of Margaret Smith. I'm also wondering what my grandfathers real name is as he is refered to as Alonzo, A.A. and Eliot, his wife refered to him as Al and my father knows him as Allie Adean. He was the brother of Royal P. Oden and Aaron Lease Oden and James Oden among others. I have some of the census records for these people but I'm looking for information connecting A.A. Oden and Ella Allbritton to their children. My father believes he was born in Crystal City Texas (03/22/1921), but there is no birth certificate on file his two younger sisters(Francis Eugenia, and Margarite) were probably born in other Texas Counties, but his older siblings were probably born in Crystal City. The include Dean, Lucille, Ferdinand Vaughan, Allie Afred, Inez. I am having difficulty finding this family in the census, but I know they were in Texas and probably in or around Zavala County. The parents of Ella Allbritton were in Jones County Texas in 1910(I think it was 1910) A.A. Oden died in about 1927 (in Texas)-my father was 7 years old. I'm looking for any additional information you may have on any of these people or these events. I'm also curious where James Oden and A.A. Oden disappeared to. I'm disappointed about the loss of the 1890 census, this info could have helped. Can you help with any of this. I know the family was in Guadalupe, Atascosa, Dimmit, Frio and Maverick Counties. I also found someone named Alonzo in McMullen county (1850, I think), but there are a lot of loose ends. I'd really like to know who the parents of Margaret Smith and Mahala Collins are too. Can you help?
