In Reply to: Mahala Skigens Anderson Bruffey in TX by Judith Fleming of 65

Mahala's maiden name was Kegans(Kiggins, Keegans, etc) ..not Skiggens. She was born about 1814 in Missouri to James Kegans and Maria Wolf Kegans. They came to Texas when it was part of Mexico. James Kegans died 1826 in Texas. There are some Republic of Texas Records of the settlement of his estate in Austin Co. TX. In the settlement of the estate Mahala is referred to as wife of Uriah Anderson. He died about 1849 in Ft. Bend Co. TX.
Mahala married Robert Cashman Bruffy 9 July 1850 in Harris Co. TX. He died 18 Dec 1854 in Ft. Bend Co. TX. I don't have a record of any children.
