Texas Death Certificate
His twin brother, James Roderick, died in infancy.
He married Lucille Harris Purcell on Sept 29, 1846 in LaGrange, Georgia. They had ten children, the first was a girl followed by nine boys. Their baby boy, William David, born 28 Sept 1848 died en route to Texas. Lucille died 08 September 1865 in Coryell County Texas. In Belton, Texas on 23 September 1868 he married Antoinette Walden Smith, a Confederate soldier's widow with four children. After her death, by 1875 he was married to his third wife, Octavia Hendrix Carson, born in Jackson County Georgia about 1830. They separated in 1888, and a legal agreement was made where he would pay her $300 a year for life if she would give up all claims to his property and leave.
The ruins of what was once known as "The Baugh Mansion", where the Baugh children grew up, is about 3/4 mile east of Mother Neff State Park near the Leon River in Coryell County. The house had 8 rooms and each room had a fireplace, hence the chimney on each end. The first floor was built 30 inches below ground level to give an advantage fighting off Indian attacks. Behind one of the ground floor fireplaces, there is rumored to have been a 3'X 3' escape tunnel that ran 150 yards west in the event that the Indians overran the house.
He came from Rusk County Texas to Coryell County in 1854 and by 1884 he owned 734 acres. He lived there until sometime after 1910, when he moved to live with his son, Harvey Francis Baugh, in Rogers.
