Birth: Feb. 13, 1838
Missouri, USA
Death: Apr. 23, 1910
Freestone County
Texas, USA

Daughter of John B. Welch and his unknown first wife, who died by 1841. John B. Welch married second, Margaret M. Stone in Barry County, Missouri 22 May 1841. The Welches moved to Texas with the Stone family circa 1843.

California married James W. Hawes in Freestone County, Texas 13 Mar 1855.

Three Children:
John H. (or T.) Hawes m. Eppie M. Jones
Margaret L. Hawes m. G. T. Jones
Jeremiah "Jerry" M. Hawes m. (1) Elizabeth Ann Lucius, (2) Etta M. Peacock

James W, Hawes enlisted in Company I, Young's 12th Texas Infantry Regiment in May 1862. The last info I've found for him was - "Dec 26, 1862, Died of disease, Little Rock". Records show that over 640 Confederate soldiers who were buried at Mt. Holly Cemetery, were re-interred at Fort Smith National Cemetery in 1884. James W. Hawes is probably among them.

California married second, Rev. Samuel Lee Bryant, in Freestone County 13 Sep 1865.

Four Children:
Susan Emily Bryant m. Francis Bowlin Bond
Samuel Lee Bryant, Jr m. Callie Virginia Yerby
Welch Allmon Bryant m. Mabel S. Lewis
Joseph Allen Bryant m. Ethel Heidelberg
