Sheriff Albert McCauley

I came across the information who Albert McCauley was while searching for some details on the Texas Ranger W. J. McCauley. Although I did not find any family connection to the latter one, I am happy to be able to tell you more about Albert who appeared to be a lawman as well.

Albert McCauley was the son of Charles Leslie McCauley and Fannie Hicks. He was the couples' oldest child who came to this world on 15 Feb. 1873 in Fayetteville, Washington County, Arkansas.

In 1880, Albert lived with his parents and family in Harrison, White County, Arkansas (1).

By 1891 the family moved to Texas. There is a note published in The Democrat (issued in McKinney, Texas on Thursday, 16 April 1891) which informs that Mr. C. L. McCauley, a Wylie citizen, visited Plano on 14 April 1891 on business (2). C. L. was Charles Leslie, Albert's father.

On 15 Jan. 1896 Albert married Miss Ola May Day (b. in Feb. 1877 in Georgia), the daughter of James Marshall day and Nancy Katherine McIntyre (3).


The newspaper clipping included below informs that the marriage took place in Parker, Collin, Texas.

Parker, Texas

 On 3 June 1900, Albert was probably visiting his parents when that year's Census clerk came to make records regarding Charles Leslie and Fannie's household. They lived with their children in Wylie (Justice Precinct 5, east part), Collin County, Texas. An interesting fact is that not far from their place, in Wylie, the family of our relative Lucillous Lee Gant was recorded as well. Studying the Census document I learned that L. Lee Gant was a blacksmith (4).

Anyway, why I say Albert was visiting his parents - because three days later, the same Census clerk came to Albert's home and listed Albert, Ola and their two children, daughter Lennie and son James Porter. Their household was in the same Wylie area where Albert's parents and siblings lived. Albert was a farmer then (5).

There is a mistake in that record - Albert's parents were born in North Carolina and Tennessee not in Arkansas.

Sometime later, Albert, Ola and children moved to McKinney. Albert was a Deputy Sheriff, nominated by Sheriff G. M. Eubanks (6).

On 3 November 1914, Albert McCauley was elected the Sheriff of McKinney (7).

Later in his life, Albert worked as a Special Agent with the Steam Railroad. In 1930, he was staying temporarily at the home of Mr. Luthur J Raley (Steam Railroad Inspector) in Wichita Falls, Wichita, Texas. It is interesting that Albert's marital status was noted as "widowed" though his wife was alive then (8). You may say - so it is not our Albert but somebody else of the same name. Actually it is him. Ola McCauley, the wife of Albert and their children lived in McKinney then, and during the same Census of 1930, she was also recorded as "widowed" (9). maybe that was what the clerks did when a husband or wife was not living with their family. Very confusing regarding the ancestry research.

Arlee McCauley mentioned in the clipping was actually R Lee McCauley born on 24 Oct. 1902. He was a restaurant employee (11). John McCauley was George Garnett McCauley (b. 25 April 1908). Another mistake is the spelling of Lennie's husband's surname and his initials. Lennie's spouse was Mr. Frank J Felden and Vivian's husband was Malcolm Kinney (12).
Two other children of Albert and Ola's:
James Porter McCauley was born on 15 Oct. 1898, Dora Vivian on 4 Dec. 1904, Lennie in Feb 1897.

I have not any connections between Sergeant William J McCauley, Texas Ranger and Sheriff Albert McCauley. However, their fathers were both born in North Carolina so there might be a family connection there.
Here is the family line which connects us to Mr Albert McCauley.

John Coffee "Jack" Hays

The visit to The Texas Rangers Heritage Center inspired me to write about John Coffee "Jack" Hays who was a Ranger as well.

According to my finds*, John is our indirect relative via Miss Rachel Donelson, the wife of President Andrew Jackson, and a sister of John's grandmother Jane. You will find more explicit information on this family line at the end of this post.

John was the son of Mr. Harmon Atkins Hays and his wife Elizabeth Cage. He was born on 28 Jan. 1817 in Little Cedar Lick, Wilson County, Tennessee. John's father named the baby boy after Colonel John Coffee.

In 1936 John Coffee Hays relocated to Texas. Thanks to the letter written by his relative President Andrew Jackson, the young man became a Texas Ranger.



Capt. Jack served in:
  • Bexar Spy Company of Frontier Volunteers from 13 Sept. 1842 to 17 January 1843 - between The San Antonio and Rio Grande Rivers, 
  • Company of Rangers (Frontier Ranging Company) from 20 February to 10 Nov. 1843 - Counties: Bexar, Refugio, Robertson, Milam, Travis, and Goliad including the Camp at Leona River in 1843,
  • Frontier Ranging Company (Corps of Rangers) from 20 Feb. to 10 Nov. 1843 and from 27 June 1844 to 28 Sept. 1845 - Bexar County and San Antonio.

Companies which operated under Capt. J. C. Hays personal orders:
  • Robertson County Rangers - Feb. to 15 Sept. 1845 - served between The Brazos and Trinity River,
  •  Goliad and Refugio Rangers Corps (Volunteers), Mountain Volunteers
  • Travis County Rangers (Austin Rangers), Travis County Ranger Corps

On 29 April 1847, in Sequin, Bexar, Texas John married Miss Susan Calvert (b. about 1827 in Alabama), the daughter of Jeremiah Strother Calvert and Priscilla Smither (1).


Two years after the marriage, Jack together with his wife, emigrated to California (2). The family settled in Oakland Township, Alameda County (3).

On 23 June 1880, they were recorded during the Census. John Coffee Hays and his son John Caperton were real estate agents. The Hays had four servants including a cook and a coachman (4).

John and Susan had at least six children. Three of them Richard, Kitty and Susan died young.

John Coffee "Jack" Hays lived 66 years. He passed on 21 April 1883 in Oakland. After his death, an article and memento summarizing his life was printed (5) in San Marcos Free Press which was issued in Hays County, Texas (the county was named for J. C. Hays in 1848).


The above clipping contains an error - in 1823 John was 6 years old and lived in Tennessee. I guess, the author of the article meant 1853. Anyway, that piece is followed by more detailed information regarding John's life and achievements (5). Besides being Texas Rangers Captain, he was also Colonel of the Volunteer Army.


Clippings source: Julian, Isaac H. San Marcos Free Press. (San Marcos, Tex.), Vol. 12, No. 23, Ed. 1 Thursday, May 10, 1883, newspaper, May 10, 1883; San Marcos, Texas. (https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth295449/: accessed May 21, 2019), University of North Texas Libraries, The Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu;.


Here is the family line:

John Coffee "Jack" Hays

his father Harmon Atkins Hays (b. about 1787, Virginia/d. 21 Oct. 1833, Tazzoo County, Mississippi)

his mother Jane (Donelson) Hays (b. about 1757, Pittsylvania County, Virginia/d. 1 Feb. 1834, Jackson, Madison, Tennessee)

her sister Rachel (Donelson) Jackson (b. 15 June 1757, Halifax, Pittsylvania, Virginia/d. 22 Dec. 1822, Hermitage, Davidson, Tennessee)

her husband Andrew Jackson

the line goes via our cousins to our direct relatives. I will describe it all soon, in the post dedicated to the family connection to Mr. Andrew Jackson.

Texas Rangers Heritage Center

Last week we visited The Texas Rangers Heritage Center in Fredericksburg, Texas. It is a museum dedicated to those men who have fought crime and criminals since the Wild West days.


Captain Cornelius V "Neal" Coldwell was the Rangers Quartermaster and Paymaster from  9 May 1879 to 31 Dec. 1882. he also served in Company F (from 4 June 1874 to 31 August 1876), and in Company A (from 1 Dec. 1876 to 31 August 1878).


In the main pavilion, there is a display of artifacts related to the Rangers including the type of handguns they used.


Reverend Doctor (Captain) Pierre Bernard Hill was the Rangers' Chaplain from 19 October 1928 to 30 December 1931. He was the one who composed the Rangers' Prayer (in the photo below).





The wagons used in the old days were like miniature homes. They were full of basic items needed in everyday life.






Outside the pavilion - the Ring of Honor commemorates all the Rangers who served in the Texas frontier.


COURAGE



RESPECT 


DETERMINATION



DEDICATION


INTEGRITY 


The museum offers educational programs including lesson plans for teachers. More about the place on its WEBSITE.


The Bell Tower is not far from the main museum pavilion.

Gustavus Adolphus Pope

Having found Gustavus Adolphus in the family tree, at first I thought he was named after the Swedish king Gustav II Adolph, known as Gustavus Adolphus the Great (if you have never heard about that ruler from the North, here is a song about him).


Another person who inspired cousin Pope's parents could be Gustavus Adolphus Henry Sr., a lawyer and a politician who represented Christian County in Kentucky legislature from 1831 to 1833. The man moved to Tennessee where the family our cousin Gustavus lived and where the boy was born on 17 Jan. 1834 (Williamson, Maury County). However, G A Henry Sr. became a Tennessee representative (and probably more popular as well) much later - in 1862.

Studying the Pope ancestry, I realized that our 3rd cousin 4 times removed was more likely named after one of his ancestors - maybe it was Gustavus Adolphus Pope I (b. 12 Dec. 1812/d. 13 January 1834 - a few days before our cousin's birth). G A Pope I was a son of John Pope III, grandfather of our Gustavus Adolphus Pope.

Anyway, Gustavus Adolphus Pope's father was Mr. William Rouse Pope (son of John Pope III), his mother was Jane Lesey Gant.

In 1850, the Census recorded Gus who lived then at the house of his uncle John Isham Gant. Studying that record we can assume that the uncle provided schooling environment for his children and some young male relatives including Gus. One of the dwellers of John's household was a  teacher.

In May 1961, cousin Gustavus was enlisted in Company A of Tennessee Confederate Cavalry, 9th Battalion. He was a quartermaster and he was captured at Fort Donelson on 16 Feb. 1862. After that, Gus was a prisoner of Camp Douglas in Chicago.

Not long ago we watched a documentary which told the little known history of the Chicago camp. Our cousin was kept there for 7 months.



Gus belonged to the lucky ones who were exchanged in September 1862 for the Union soldiers at Vicksburg, Mississippi. Lucky, because although the living conditions in the camp were not good even at its beginnings, later the situation severely deteriorated.

After the exchange, Gustavus Adolphus Pope was sent to Port Hudson, Louisiana and promoted to cavalry captain. Later, he served in Dalton, Georgia, and in the Carolinas under Gen. Wheeler. When the Confederate Army surrendered in May 1865 (Charlotte, North Carolina), Gus came back home to Tennessee.

I found the record of Gus Pope marriage to Miss Lucy Fitzgerald, which took place in Maury, Tennessee on 12 May 1871 (1).


Was it our Gustavus? Probably.

The second marriage was on  4 Nov. 1875 in Giles, Tennessee. Gus' spouse was Miss Myra Belle Carter (b. in May 1853/d. 1926, Pulaski, Giles, County, Tennessee).


In 1900, Gustavus, his wife and three children lived in Pulaski town, Giles, TN. Gus was a pharmacist and owned a drugstore.

Cartes Pope mentioned above was Frank Carter Pope, the second son of Gus and Myra's. He was born on 27 April 1878 in Pulaski. Frank became a lawyer (4). He married Miss Eva Moore on 18 Oct. 1806 (5).

Myra  Lesey (b. 19 June 1855/d. April 1960, Del Rio, Val Verde, Texas) married Louis Martin Cartall on Tuesday 11 Nov. 1913 at 3 PM at the Pope family home in Pulaski (6,7).

Myra Belle (b.21 June 1891/d. 19 August 1899)

Gus A Pope lived in Pulaski till the day of his death which came to him in 1923. Gustavus got ill in April of that year. The doctor visited him at the family home at Sam Davis Ave. in Pulaski on 30 April.  It was Pyelitis, probably caused by kidney infection. Gus conditioned worsened and led to heart problems. Gustavus Adolphus pope passed on 4 May. Tachycardia and Pyelitis with pus formation in pelvis was stated in his death certificate (12). It seems dear Gus died due to severe kidney infection which led to a septic shock. He was buried at Maplewood Cemetery.

Lue Dean McIntosh

Lue Dean, our aunt, was born on 23 Jan. 1922 in Upshur, Texas. She grew up on her father's farm in Eastern Texas.

When Lue Dean was 21, on 31 Dec. 1941, she married 25-year-old Mr. Algie William Hopkins, the son of James Calvin Hopkins and Birdie Jackson. That must have been a great New Year's Eve! The family had a double reason to celebrate - the end of the year and the wedding.


Anyway, Algie was born on 29 August in Texas. Shortly before the wedding, he was recorded during the WW2 Army Enlistment.

Algie W Hopkins
United States World War II Army Enlistment Records (1)

Algie served as a Technician Fourth Grade in Company B in 373D Engineer Regiment. The man was honorably discharged on 9 Oct. 1945 (2). After the war, Algie worked as a butcher for Safeway Company. The family lived in Marshall, Texas.

Lue Dean and Algie had two sons. Sadly, before the second boy came to this world, a tragedy happened. On 20 March 1920 Algie was found dead in Dallas (3). He died from a gunshot wound. Was he shot or whether he took his own life, I do not know. Algie W Hopkins was only 26 then. He was buried at the Center Cemetery in Harleton, Harrison County, Texas.

A few years later, aunt Lou Dean remarried. Her second husband was Mr. Reuben Ezell Shadowen (b. 12 Feb. 1915, Texas), son of Major Ezell Shadowen and Malinda Pearl Breedlove.

Lue Dean and Reuben had two girls. The father of the family worked as a machine operator (3).

One day, the man got overexcited watching a baseball game in which his stepsons participated. Unfortunately, Lue Dean's husband did not return home after the game, he was taken to Markham Hospital in Longview, Texas.


Clipping source: Brewer, Orlin. The Levelland Daily Sun News (Levelland, Tex.), Vol. 17, No. 202, Ed. 1 Wednesday, June 11, 1958, newspaper, June 11, 1958; Levelland, Texas.

Some people say that mass sport leads to an individual injury. In case of Reuben, it actually was hypertension which he had suffered from + excitement that led to his death. Anyway, aunt Lue Dean was in mourning again. Reuben was buried on 6 June at Gregg Memorial Gardens.

Life was going on. On 14 April 1967 (4), Lou Dean McIntosh married again. That time her spouse was Mr. Price Eugene Stratton (b. 31 Dec. 1917 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma), the son of Mr. Carl H Stratton and Miss Agnes Groseclose. Price's father was a Bertillon Expert and worked for the Police (5).

By the way, Bartillon System was an identification method used in early criminology. It was based on detailed body measurements, physical description and skeleton analysis (created by Alphonse Bertillon in France in 1885). The system was later replaced by fingerprinting.

Wish I knew more about aunt Lou Dean, what she liked, what her favorite flowers were, what Price did for a living, how their life in Gregg was.

So far, I can only add another date here - the day when Lue Dean passed. It was 21 January 1992. Her body was buried in Longview, Gregg County, Texas.

PS

Terry and Keith mentioned in the clipping, the sons of Algie and Lue, are no longer alive either.

William Terry Hopkins - b. 1 Jan. 1946, Dallas, Dallas, Texas/d. 27 March 1994, Corpus Christi, Nueces, Texas

Price Euguene Stratton passed on 17 June 2005, Polk, Texas.

Gladys Loyd - Who Is This Little Cutie?

This picture was given to me with an attached question: "Who is this mystery girl?".


The photo is signed on the other side. Here is the girl's name.


I checked our family tree to see if there are any Loyd people in it. There is, one only - Matilda M Perdue nee Loyd (b. 18 Sept. 1828 in Sumner, Tennessee/d. 5 August 1902, Portland, Sumner, Tennessee). She was our great-grandmother's sister's mother-in-law.

Matilda M (Loyd) Perdue
her son Perry Washington Perdue (b. 12 June 1850, Tennessee/d. 27 Dec. 1943, Portland, Tennessee)
his wife Martha C (Shanklin) Perdue (b. 21 Jan. 1843, North Carolina/d. 10 March 1895, Sumner, Tennessee)
her sister Helen Jane (Shanklin) Gant - our great-grandmother

All the above people were born in the 1800s before our ancestors came to Texas. No sign of little Gladys who was most certainly born much later.

Looking at the girl, her hairstyle, my guess is the picture was probably taken in the early 1930s. So Gladys was presumably born in the late 1920s or at the very beginning of the 30s. If the photo was in the family album, signed by either our aunt or mom, the girl most likely would be a child of a relation.

The old newspapers which I looked through tell that there was a Loyd/Lloyd family in Collin County, where our ancestors lived as well. However, so far, there is too little data to find any family connection.

Maybe little Gladys is still alive? These days she would not be that little, though.
