1860-Texas Slave Schedule

This is a portion of the slave schedule for Texas, showing M.G. Settle and his two slaves, one of which he "adopted" and brought to California with him. Frank Settle died at the age of 16 and was the first person to be buried in Little Lake Cemetery. I don't know what happened to the 11 year old girl. I've thought a lot about both of them, and wonder why Frank would die at 16, soon after arriving in California? Bless his heart.
