  • From 1870 Angelina County, TX Census:
    Name Relation Marital
    Gender Race Age Birth
    Occ. Land
    Windham, Hilrie Self M Male W 25 MS Farmer $700
    Windham, Mrs. Missie Wife M Female W 23 TX Keeping
    Windham, Ella Dau S Female W 7 TX    
    Windham, Lottie Dau S Female W 5 TX    
    Windham, Dicie Dau S Female W 3 TX    
    Windham, Thomas   S Male W 13 TX Farm Labor  
    Blake, William   S Male W 13   Farm Labor  
    Blake, John   S Male W 9 TX    
    Blake, Dicie   S Female W 5 TX    

    I find that Tom Windham is listed as farm labor, which kind of indicates that he is not one of Hilery's sons. A nephew perhaps. Also, three Blake children living with them. Who do they belong to? 

  • From Betty M. Pierce of Brownwood, TX:
    Thomas Windham was selected as the first Probate Judge for Angelina County in 1846 and he also served as Postmaster for Fort Turan from 1856 to 1866. In the census for Homer, AngeTX, Thomas Windham, age 63 and born in South Carolina, is shown to have $3200 in land and a total worth of $15,000.

  • Tom and Dicey are buried in Angelina Co. TX.

  • On an Original Land Owners of Texas Abstract, Thomas B. Windham is shown to have owned 191 acres.

  • Thomas B. resided in Butler Co., AL (1840), AngeTX (1860). He was a member of Henderson's Company, Smith's Alabama Mounted Volunteers, during the Creek Indian War (1836-1837). He was Sheriff of Butler Co., AL 1835 through 1837. During the Civil War, he did not serve in the military as a regular soldier. Thomas was "pro-Rebel" in an area that not everyone wanted to take part in the War. He was a Captain in the Home Guard Patrol of Angelina Co., TX, during the Civil War. The Home Guard was a security unit whose duties were to keep order and to protect the citizens from any danger. The was a posse chosen from each justice precinct in the country and it was made up of a captain and several riders. The Angelina County Home Guard patrol was also known as the "Jayhawkers", after a similarly named unit in Kansas.
