Fourth Generation

266. Camilla HADEN432 was born in 1826 in Alabama.

Camilla married in DeSoto Parish, LA in 1847 - that is the earliest reference to her found so far.

There is no proof that this lady is a daughter of Robert G. & Mary other than proximity and no other family into which she might fit. Across the state line in Panola TX in the 1850 census is a Dickson Thompson, age 28, b. TN with wife "Caroline", age 24, b. AL. They have two children born in Texas, Augusta A. age 2 and Cornelia age 6 months. They lived next door to Amos Thompson, age 50, and his family. [I think this stands an excellent possibility of being Camilla - perhaps her name was misread in transcribing the marriage record, or the enumerator misunderstood the name Camilla.]
