The Price Family of Navarro Co Texas
The Price Family name has been permanent and prominent in the Kerens area of Navarro County, Texas for more than a century. Residents living there in the 1930s and 1940s will remember the Price children…Carolyn, Ted, and Perry, and will remember, as well, their parents…….Weymon Adair and Hattie Icelee Arnett Price….who lived in the white house on Hiway 31.
HATTIE ICELEE ARNETT
A cute little thing with auburn hair and mischief always on her mind, who became a paraplegic as the result of an automobile accident in 1945, but who was never disabled in mind or attitude.
The Peter Arnett Family was found in the 1790 census in Anson Co NC. Sarah Arnett was born 1760. John Thomas Arnett, b1850 GA…married Sarah Gilcrease in Navarro Co TX in 1875. They had five sons and one daughter. John Wesley Arnett, Wade James Arnett, George Rubin Arnett, Benjamin Burt Arnett, William Thomas Arnett, and Matilda Arnett.
WEYMAN ADAIR PRICE
The kind, hard working, no nonsense farmer who loved his family….who lived daily the religion he embraced each Sunday at the Presbyterian Church.
Together, they lived and loved for more than a half century and set a sterling example for their children…and…for all who knew them.
WHO WERE THESE PRICES?
The earliest Price names were to be found in Wales.
Matthew Price b. 1510 lived at Newton Hall, Montgomeryshire, Wales.
He was followed by Richard Price I b. 1530 and
Richard Price II b. 1555 Manvan, Montgomeryshire, Wales
John Price I b.1584 lived at Montgomeryshire, Wales , but apparently, migrated to the Virginia Colony early in the 1600s. His son John Price II b. 1627 at Henrico Co VA married Rowen there. The area was near present day Richmond.
It was there that John Price III b. 1650 married Jane Pugh…. and John Price IV b. 1690 married Hannah Williamson. Their son, William Price, married Hannah Burton. Another son, Daniel Price, married his cousin, Mary Williamson.
Pugh Price, son oe John II and Jane Pugh Price, had a son, Pugh Price II, who settled in Fayette Co KY.
It was at this point in time that several members of the Henrico CO VA Price family migrated to Chester Co SC. The will of Thomas Price was filed there 1781. Daniel Price had migrated there and had two sons, Cutbert Price and Daniel Price Jr. Both names would surface again and again in the Price family as they migrated westward to Kerens, Texas. A John Price who was found in Chester Co SC in the census of 1790 was, possibly, another son.
The 1850 Chester Co SC census presented a Daniel Price III born 1794 and was married to Mary Gunn. Daniel had a brother whose name was John Price.
Cutbert Price, son of Daniel Sr Price, was born 1766 and married Margaret Dorsey in Henrico Co VA, migrated to Chester Co SC, and was said to have died there in 1834. Their children were said to have included the following:
Joseph Price who married Mary Polly Dorsey,
daughter of Cornelius Dorsey who died at Chester Co SC in1820.
Possible son…Alexander C Price who was found in the 1840
Walker Co AL census and who had a son whose name was Alexander Cornelius Price
Interesting: The Bible of Johnson Dorsey b. 1815 and who married Sarah Glass in 1836 was found in an old house at Palestine, Anderson Co TX
Cutbert Price who married Margaret Straight in 1827 in Green Co AL and died there before 1832. Margaret Straight Price was remarried to Joseph Trussell in 1832 in Green Co AL. Both were killed by slaves in 1835. The name Trussell was connected to the Price family in Chester Co
Sally Price who married 1825 John Ritchey in Green Co AL. William Richey married c1825 Margaret Ann ADAIR and lived in Pickens Co Alabama. Elizabeth ADAIR married Robert Dale in Pickens Co AL John & Margaret Richey were in SC in the 1770s. Sarah Jane Ritchey was found at Tuscaloosa AL in 1852. She had a brother whose name was Curry Ritchey.

Elenor was the daughter of Moses Lewis who born at Richmond VA and died in Chester Co SC. After Moses died, his wife, Elizabeth Lewis migrated to Green Co AL with her daughter Elenor. Elenor had two sisters, Charity Lewis Parks, who lived at Battlefield, Lauderdale Co MS, and Elizabeth Lewis.
Thomas J and Elenor Lewis Price migrated from Chester Co SC to Green Co Alabama. Some references indicate they may have lived for a time in Walker Co Alabama prior to migrating to Green Co. where many of their children married. They would migrate once more to Anderson Co Texas.
Both are buried there at Prices Chapel Cemetery which is located three mile North of Palestine TX and east of Hiway 155.
THE THOMAS PRICE FAMILY
GREEN CO ALABAMA
It was in Green Co Alabama in 1852 that Elenor Price wrote a letter to her sister, Charity Lewis Parks, Battlefield, Lauderdale Co MS which is located just across the state line from Green Co AL. Her father was Moses Lewis and she had a second sister, Elizabeth. She referred to her husband as “Mr. Price, and mentions Weyman, Cutberth, William,, Sammy T, Daniel,…and she is….. “giving up about going to Texas.”
(Trussell collection at University of Texas Library at Arlington, Texas)
The following children appear in various Green Co Alabama records.
Margaret S Price 1818-1824 She lived for six years
Cutbert Lewis Price 1821-1899 Cutbert Lewis Price was married in Green Co in 1849 to Elizabeth A Johnson. The 1860 Anderson Co Texas census records C L Price is married to E A. Their son was John Caldwell Price. Eleanor Price, in her will of 1862, mentions her son, C L Price.
William S Price 1824- William S Price was married in Green Co Alabama in 1856 to Mary Ann Cockrell. They had a son, Weyman Adair Price, who was born before 1862 and was named after a younger brother of William S Price.
Elizabeth A Price 1826- Elizabeth A Price was married in Green County Alabama in 1847 to Thomas Peter Hamilton b.1826, a son of James Monroe Hamilton. He was a grandson of Capt Peter Thomas Hamilton who died in Green Co AL in 1850. Capt. Hamilton had married a second time in 1841 to Ann Posey, dau of William Posey of Green Co Alabama. He was murdered by slaves who wanted off July 4. Interesting is the fact that Adren Posey 1830-1912 CSA is buried at Prairie Point Cemetery near Bazzette/
Samuel Thomas Price 1831- Samuel Thomas Price was married in
Green Co Alabama in 1852 to Sarah Otts. Samuel T Price is mention as a son in the 1862 will of Lenor Lewis Price at Anderson Co Texas. Posey Otts married Virginia Anderson and was living in Young Co Texas in 1871 when a daughter was born. The Posey name surfaces a number of times with Price and related families. A number of Price families are found inYoung Co Texas.
Susan Price Susan Price was married in Green Co Alabama in 1855 to Amos Lay. Amos Lay was, probably, the son of Amos Lay Sr. who was born in Virginia in 1800, and a grandson of Emanuel Lay who had migrated to Green Co Alabama from Chester Co SC between 1834 and 1837. The Lay Family was related to the Hardin Family. Some member of the Lay family migrated to Scott Co MS.
Weyman Adair Price 1836- Weyman Adair Price did not marry in Green Co Alabama. He would have been eighteen years of age when the family migrated to Anderson Co Texas in 1854.
Thomas J and Elenor Lewis Price migrated from Green Co Alabama to Anderson Co Texas in 1854.,. Cutbirt Lewis Price & his family may have settled there as early as 1851, the year their son, T. E. Price, was born.
THE 1850 ANDERSON CO CENSUS
Elanor Price was listed #137 as Head of Household with Weyman and Sarah Price living with her. Thomas J Price had died in 1858 and Weyman had married Sarah Ann Gray in January of 1860. Eleanor was sixty…b1800….was a farmer. Her real property was listed as $1700, personal property was $9000. SC was listed as her birthplace. Weyman was listed as twenty-four years of age….Sarah Ann was twenty-two. Weyman and Sarah were shown to have been born in Alabama. Sarah was, actually, born in Illinois.
Weyman Adair Price b1836 had married Sarah Ann Gray b1838… in Anderson Co Texas on January 26, 1860. Two years later he would be serving in the Confederate Army. Four of the Albritton sons would serve as well. Matthew Ford Albritton married Pelina Gray, Sarah’s sister. John Gray 1845-1927, Sarah’s brother, would, also, serve. All were buried at the Prairie Point Cemetery near Bazzette, Texas.
William Gray, Sarah’s father, was Head of Household at # 782. He was fifty-four, born NC, his real property was $1600, his personal property $6230. His wife, Sally, was fifty and was born in Tennessee. Their son, John Gray, age 15, was born in Illinois. Three younger children were born in Texas….Melvina & Pelina, age 12, and Leonard, age 8. The Gray family, apparently, migrated from North Carolina to Tennessee to Illinois …then to Texas in 1845.
C L Price was listed as #161. This was Cutbert Lewis Price, age thirty-nine, a farmer, born Alabama, his real property was listed as $1600., his personal property $10,900. E A was shown as his wife…she was thirty years old. He had married Elizabeth A Johnson in Green Co Alabama. Their children were T E age 9 (f), F E age 7 (m), S E age 4 (f), and C J age 1 (f). Cutbert & Elizabeth may have settled in Anderson Co Texas as early at 1851 based on the fact that their first son was born in Texas that year.
Samuel T Price and William S Price, children mentioned in the 1862 will of Elenor Lewis Price and who married in Green Co Alabama, are not shown in the 1860 Anderson Co census.
W S Price was found in Navarro Co. Texas and was one of the first to build a residence in the new town of Kerens, Texas in 1881. This must have been William S Price, son of Thomas J and Elenor Lewis Price. He was born in 1824 and would have been fifty-seven in 1881. He and his brother, Weyman Adair Price, signed the 1888 petition to organize the town of Kerens. His brother, Weyman Adair Price had a son whose name was William Sidney Price who was born after 1862, but it is doubtful that he would have made such a purchase at the age of nineteen or younger.
Samuel T Price was living at the time of his Mother’s 1862 will, but he was not found in Anderson Co or in adjacent counties.
Thomas Price was listed at # 951. He was 51 and born in Georgia, but his children were born in Arkansas and Louisiana. The names Daniel, Thomas J, and William indicate that these Prices were “kin,” probably first cousins who kept in touch despite distances.
Elenor Lewis Price died July 29, 1862
Her will was recorded in Anderson Co Texas.

WEYMAN ADAIR PRICE
The name…Weyman Adair Price…may be traced to the Laurens Co SC marriage of Thomas Adair and Nancy Weyman. Their son, Zadock Adair, married Sarah Kelly and became parents of Weyman Adair, born 1808. Rev. Weyman Adair married Delithia DeBerry in Laurens Co SC. Rev. Wayman Adair, probably a son of Zadock Adair, married Caroline Canant in 1847 at Tusculoosa Co AL, a county adjacent to Green Co AL where the Joseph T Price family settled. Zadock Adair lived in Perry Co AL, also adjacent to Green Co AL….and was found in the 1850 Texas census living in Houston Co, next door to Anderson Co where the Green Co AL Price Family had migrated in the same decade.
Could it be that The Rev. Weyman Adair was a preacher living in Tuscaloosa AL and was pastor of the church where the Thomas J Price Family attended. Was he related to the family in some way? Regardless, when the boy child was born to Thomas J and Elenor Lewis Price in 1836…he was given the name.. Weyman Adair Price.
The name was passed on to a son born to William S Price prior to 1862 and when the boy child was born to Weyman and Sarah Ann Gray Price between 1860 and 1862…he was named William Sidney Price for his uncle…and known in the Kerens area as “Will Sidney” Price.
The 1862 will of Elenor Lewis Price clearly left the bulk of her estate to Weyman Adair Price…her youngest son….suggesting that the three other sons had received their inheritances earlier. Cutbert Lewis Price was shown in the 1860 census.to have accumulated a sizable estate. William S Price settled at some point in Navarro Co and was a prominent citizen there by 1881 when he “moved to the new city of Kerens.”
Weyman Adair Price…did…return safely to his family after the hostilities of the Civil War ended. He had served in the 13th Regiment Texas Cavalry. Three Price names appear on the muster of “D” Company….Weyman A Price, Samuel T Price, & Josiah Price.
Weyman & Sarah filed CSA Pension applications in Navarro Co

THE 13TH TEXAS REGIMENT
The 13th Texas Cavalry mustered with men from northeastern Texas counties in February 1862 and reorganized in May 1862 at Porter Springs, Houston Co. Texas. The unit trained briefly north of Tyler and in July departed for Arkansas. Thirty men died in July and August when an epidemic of measles and typhoid fever struck the camp. The unit was deployed along the White River in northern Arkansas during the month of October, saw no action, but encountered severe freezing rail. The unit returned to Camp Nelson near Austin AR where sickness, again, began to claim more lives. Rations were limited and of poor quality. Twenty-five men died in November alone. The muster in June 1863 revealed that almost two hundred men had died or become disabled and discharged.
It was January 1863 that the unit was ordered to reinforce a post on the Arkansas River, but it was captured by General Sherman before they arrived. They were redirected to construct defensive earthworks upriver to counter a Union threat that did not materialize. More men died, however, from the freezing rain before the unit was ordered to winter quarters.
The unit experienced a single brief skirmish in 1863 where one man was killed. The balance of the year was spent on picket duty on the Red River. During the spring of 1864 the unit moved to Louisiana and, when threatened by a Union force of 40,000, retreated in confusion. Five men were captured. Later, the unit participated in the Battle of Pleasant Hill where ten men were killed and forty-one wounded. The unit was in Shreveport in January and ordered to return to Texas in the spring. Most members of the 13th Texas Cavalry were home on leave when the surrender at Appomattox was announced.
The 1870 Navarro Co Texas census reveals that
William Gray….age sixty and from Tennessee, is there with his wife, Sally Sinclair. His son, John Gray, lives nearby, and has a wife and two year old son. Shown on Beat # 3 Wadeville
James and Mary Peters from Georgia are there with their family…probably related to Washburn Peters of Kerens.
Noble Wade and his family were listed. He and his wife were from Kentucky.
A Posey from Georgia is listed.
NO MEMBERS OF THE THOMAS J PRICE FAMILY
WERE FOUNDIN 1870 NAVARRO CO CENSUS
Facts indicate that William S Price and Weyman Adair Price moved from Anderson Co Texas to Navarro Co at some point between 1870 and 1881 when William S Price purchased a lot and had a residence constructed in Kerens. Both brothers were among the petitioners in 1888 calling for the community of Kerens to be organized. A search of deed records in both counties would provide the exact dates.
William S Price fades from the records and it is possible that he moved to Henderson Co.
Weyman Adair and Sarah Ann Gray Price, apparently, moved to the Bazzette area of Navarro Co where Sarah’s parents had moved prior to 1870. Weyman and Sarah had married in Anderson Co Texas in January 1860 and were living with Weyman’s Mother, Elenor, at the time of the 1860 census. Two years later, Weyman was in service with the Confederate Army and, their son,William S Price, had been born.
Sarah’s parents were listed in the 1870 Navarro Co census as living in the Wadeville community. The Texas Handbook states that Wadeville is located three miles south of Kerens, but the William Gray family and the Weyman Price family are buried at the Prairie Point Cemetery which is located near Bazzett….three miles NORTH of Kerens. More, Noble Wade lived north of Kerens on the road from Porters Bluff to Corsicana.
William Gray b.1808 and his wife, Sarah Sinclair Gray are buried at Prairie Point Cemetery. Nearby are the graves of their son, John Gray, and his wife, Susan Leah Gaines. They were married in Anderson Co. Another son, Leonard Gray and his wife Amanda, are buried there. Melvina Gray married a Mr. Warren and they are buried there. Her twin sister, Pelinia married Matthew Ford Albritton. They, too, are buried at Prairie Point Cemetery.
Weyman Adair Price 1836-1919 and Sarah Ann Gray Price are buried there. Adjacent to their graves are two additional graves….a Mother and child. Their son William Sidney Price had married Frances L Coulson and she and her infant child were buried there in 1892. Frances Coulson was born in 1862 near the year in which William Sidney Price was born.
Uncle “Will Sidney” Price lived into the 1930s and was well known in Kerens by family and friends. He would have been seventy-three years of age in 1935. “Will Sidney” was not buried at Prairie Point Cemetery and it is probable that he remarried after the death of Frances Coulson. He may be buried at the Kerens Cemetery.
His brother was Lewis Price and there is the possibility that his name was Cutbert Lewis Price. Lewis Price married Rilla Wade November 27, 1896 at Navarro Co Texas. Lewis Price and Rilla Wade were the parents of Weyman Adair Price who was born in 1903, who married Hattie Icelee Arnett. Their second son was Wade Price.
My, but those Price families reused those family names…..
