Good Morning Bill,

It is amazing what one can find when they clean off their desk.  The following are the facts from the probate records obtained in Fannin Co., TX on my last trip.

An affidavit from (looks like) D. Bradbury of Galveston Co., TX dated March, 1858. He first knew George W. Couch & family in 1842 living on Bolivar Peninsular. The family consisted of Sarah Mariah, eldest daughter, John and Simon B, their two sons, Caroline & Mahitable their two youngest daughters.  Mrs. Couch died in 1843 and buried on said peninsula.  Soon after the death of Sarah's mother, she married a Wm. Sanderson a resident of the Peninsula Point.  Then they moved to Galveston, TX.  G. W. Couch and the balance of his family moved to the upper part of the state, from whence Mr. Couch and his son Simon B. went to California.  Bradbury stated he saw Simon B. and his sister, Carolina while visiting their only sister, Mrs. Sanderson.  Also that John and Mahitable had died some where in upper Texas.  Simon and Caroline went together to Ellis Co., TX where Caroline married a John P. McCauley and now living in Ellis or Hill Co., TX.  He goes on to say in
the affidavit that he believes that Sarah M. Sanderson and Caroline McCauley are the only living heirs of Simon B. Couch.

In a document by William and his wife, Sarah M. Sanderson, stated that she and Caroline McCauley are the only survivors of their fathers family who migrated to Texas in July,1838.  Dated March, 1858.

I will be on SKYPE this afternoon and will give you a call.
