I think your wife's family and mine are probably the same. My Mary J. GARLINGTON who was b.06MAR1850 MS and married John L. BURROUGH 10SEP1868. This couple had at least 3 children in what was then Calcasieu Parish (Sugartown) but is now Beauregard Parish, I think. Anyway, sometime in either 1876 or 1877 they went to Bosque County TX by ox cart. Mary GARLINGTON had 2 more children in TX and then she died 04FEB1891 in TX. At that time, John BURROUGH went back to LA in the ox cart and married a Susan PIERCE from Sugartown and returned to TX (via same ox cart)with his new bride. We think that Herbert GARLINGTON who is on the 1850 census in Calcasieu Parish might be Mary J. GARLINGTON's father. It is most confusing because there are two Mary's in his household at that time (1850) and our Mary J. GARLINGTON was already married by then, so we are not sure. I have tried to contact GARLINGTONs still living in the area of De Ridder in years past, with no response. What information do you have on your wife's family? Do you know anything about the Herbert that appears on the 1850 census? I will gladly exchange family information on the GARLINGTONs in this area. I have the GARLINGTON book written by Thesta Scogland. If you don't have access to the book, I will gladly look up anything that you think might help you.
