I think I can give you additional information:
Francis (Abraham Francis) known as Frank, was born in 1834
in Pulaski County, Arkansas. He left home around the age
of 17 and emigrated to Texas. In 1853 he married Margaret
Louisa Fitzgerald (sometimes known as Ella?). The info you
have about Margaret I believe, is all correct. Frank died
in 1892 in Kerr County.
Their first child (not shown on your chart) was Frances,
born in 1854 (married B. Williford). There was also a child
named Etta born in 1863- died young. Alice, born in 1866
married Millard Goodner, A.B. (Bertie) or Alva Bert was a
male--although he was listed once on the census as female.
He never married. Frank, born in 1872 married Leacy
Stapleton and they had 3 children: Frances, Antoinette and
Marzella. Emma married Nathan Sherman; she died 1964 in
Bexar County. Charles married Della Hickson and they had
eight children: Abner, Guy, Abraham, Eula, Emma, Esther,
Hazel and Earl.
Their seventh child, Thomas Fielden Secrest (my grandfather)
was born in 1865 in Lavaca County, Tx. He married Annie
