I am searching for the parents and the family of Francis E. POPE of Morgan Co., AL.; b. Aug. 1819 in AL, d. March 1912 in TX My 2nd great grandmother was Francis POPE CAMPBELL ENGLISH . She married David S. CAMPBELL in Morgan Co. AL in 1839. They along with the James CAMPBELL Jr. family in 1840 migrated to the Republic of Texas. The 1860 census of Lamar Co., TX has A. E. and M. C.

At least three, and perhaps more, of his children were born in Alabama in 1831, 1832 and 1835. (They were 19, 18, and 15 on the 1850 census, so any older children had probably already left home.)

THE SMITHS- believe Cyrus had several brothers, one of whom I do know to be named Henry; and I believe one sister. Several of his brothers and he fought in the Civil War, though not on the same sides. I have been told that they were rich plantation owners and owned more slaves than anyone else in the county at that time. They lived on Cherry Creek. THE FINERTYS- Little is known. I believe Julia was either half or one-fourth Indian. [Walter once recalled sitting on his mother's Dad's knee and he was a big Indian and was chief of the tribe]- And also that she relocated to TN after the death of Cyrus for fear that his family would take her son away from her.
