Like to make contact with anyone researching this African American family who's slave migration brought them to Grimes County circa 1855? Jackson (Jack Venters) was still in Grimes in 1880 but migrated soon afterwards to Parsons, Labette County, Kansas. Possibly came to Texas with Stoneham family--and may have been slave of or worked for, after slavery ended the McIntrye family--Margaret or one of her sons. Lore claims the Venters came to Texas as part of a large group of slaves--some of whom made the trip with them to Kansas. Among that group may have been, Browns, Fagans, Bowens, Dedmans, Teagues, and Kinneys. Interested in any of the above named as well.

Sharing techniques. Search 1870 Census of Grimes using wildcard option Vent* for surname only. Experience tells me you should focus on Cally, age 1. Also, older sister Francis/Frances wed Edmund "Ed" Edwards 9 Jan 1871. See 1880 Grimes-Anderson-060-Image 18 and 1900 Grimes-Precinct 1-District 17-Image 21.
