1867 Stone: Allen STROUD, Second Sheriff of Williamson County Texas

I have found no closer match to this stone.  Moreover, I have found a Bosque County Texas deed dated 12 October 1867 in which the executor (son Samuel A Stroud) of “Allen Stroud, dec’d” and “surviving wife Arza” is selling their homestead in Williamson County Texas.  So, Allen Stroud died before 12 October 1867, likely in Williamson County.  His wife died after that date and is found nowhere in 1870.  Samuel migrated on to Fresno California, and that is where he is found in 1870; but I believe Arza died by 1870 is buried back in Williamson County next to her husband.  Unless or until proven otherwise.  For a really good bio (not written by me, was submitted to an Ancestry Family Tree), click here

“Feb 1 1867”. This was found about halfway down the stone, below ground level. Click on the image to enlarge.
