Hello All. I am researching the Sargent (many spellings) Family that was in Fayette County, Texas.
The earliest record I have on them in Texas is Jasper A. SEARGEANT. He arrived in Texas in 1831. I have a Land Grant in spanish, containing Jasper A. Seargeant's signature. Villa de Austin. If anyone is interested in translating or even just typing it out in Spanish, I would be grateful. He is listed as one of the first land owners in Fayette County. He was murdered by Mason Foley in 1845.
His son, John Austin SEARGEANT, was born about 1834 and lived his life in Fayette County. He died in 1925.
Generations after this started spelling the last name SARGENT.
Any family or anyone who may have any information on this SARGENT family, please contact me.
