Disambiguation: Cash McDonalds in Texas

As there are at least two Cash McDonalds born approximately the same time period, this is an effort to distinguish between the two:

1 - Dace "Cash" McDonald, born 15 September 1849 in Lawrence County, Missouri, died 13 January 1923 in Bowie, Montague County, Texas
2 - Casus "Cash" McDonald, born 9 February 1849 in Polk County, Missouri, died 8 February 1945 in Montague County, Texas

I will continue a second table below as I've found another two later Cash McDonalds that folks are mixing up. See second table below.

So sometime between 1856 and 1859 the family came to Texas.

Obviously not s/o Cash & Drucilla, so I am assuming for now this the son of Giles/Jarrel.

Later research indicates Cash is now going by his initials, D.C. very likely because there is another fellow in the area going by the name Cash McDonald.

Birth year and age of Mahala was nearly impossible to read; is recorded as indexed at ancestry.com even though this is not logical.

  • Dace's birth year does NOT agree with him being on the 1850 census or with the record in the Texas Ranger Pension Applications book, pg 66 which says he was born 15 Sep 1849. (This record gives Mahala's birth as 30 Mar 1852.)

I can't assume this is s/o Giles because Cash s/o Giles
is still with his wife Maria in 1920. Unless Maria has a middle
name of Louisa. Ah yes! She is Maria L in 1910 and has a dau Mary L. who by 1910 is 21.
