      Per family genealogist Patsy Jackson:
      Together with their newborn son, Charles William, W.B.'s son from a previous marriage George Walter age 7, and W.B's sister, they came to Texas. The first documented place they have been found in was Anderson County, where they are listed on the 1880 US Census. (Anderson County appears to have been a common entry point into Texas.) Family history states that his sister married a man named Suggs and settled near Troup, Smith County TX. From Anderson County they next traveled to Plank, in Hardin County . W.B. was a farmer and they operated a sawmill at Plank, TX. Next they moved to Trinity County near the town of Glendale. While in Trinity County he operated a sawmill. They buried their five month old son, Albert Carroll, in the Glendale Cemetery in October 1884. On November 11, 1895, W.B. Munson bought an 80 acre tract of land in Polk County, TX at 10 Mile Board for $1800.00, from the estate of James Fowler. William Berry and Julia Ann moved Ten Mile Board with their children. Family history records that they moved into a "cabin" until their new two-story home was completed. The drive way to their home was lined with cedar trees. There primary occupation was farming.
