I have a small amount of info re: the subject family who moved to Texas in the time before Texas came into the Union. They apparently moved from Texas to Dade Co.,MO and they incorrectly are listed in the 1850 Census of that county as Mathias Alort. They are correctly listed in the 1860 Census as the subject family. His oldest daughter, Mary Catherine was my great grandmother. She was born in Illinois on 12/28/1839 and she married my great grandfather, D. F. Lollar on 6/7/1860.
Mathew was a Civil War veteran as were several of his sons, having fought on the Confederate side. His wife Emmaline received a pension from the state of Texas.
My great grandmother, her oldest child, her sister and her mother were driven from their home in MO and moved by ox cart from there to Lamar County, Texas during the later part of that war.
My great grandmother, her sister and mother are all buried in the Blair, OK cemetery. I don't have any info as to where Mathew is buried.
