Janie,

re: John F. Fairchild, b-1828 TN vs. John Farichild b-1828TX.

Question: Both John Fairchild's had a daughters named Arminita and Artamesia. ...Arminita vs. Artamesia ... are entirely different names. If they were more similar, I'd suspect that he had two families, but I don't think so.
.
Below from my 190-page Name Index.

FAIRCHILD, John F. Fairchild, b-1828 TN; m-Loanda; 1860 Hunt cen p350; Martin's 5th Part Ran, Co H, Cpl (Cpl, Hunt Co, TST)

Since I have access to facsimiles of the following three originals, my only question is what does the initial "F" in his name represent?
.
1) handwritten militia listing
2) handwritten 1860 Hunt Co TX cen records
3) handwritten muster roll of Martin's 5th Partisan Ranger Cavalry
.
Yes, there is one "John Fairchild, b-1828 TX in the 1860 Burleston Co TX cen, p149," who is married to Martha with four children born in Texas. .... WHILE one "John F. Farirchild b-1828 TN" had 5-yr old born in Arkansas.

re: Capt. Ed Burleson. Just so you'll know, Burleson and company came to the Red River area three or four times during the War.
.
I have transcribed 240 North Texas militia listings, most have intitials -- many have only one initial -- only for first names ... and yes, many misspelled surnames. My Name Index has 39,500 entries, but of course, many soldiers' names appear on several pages. By the way, the scope of my book was determined by THE BOURLAND PAPERS. ... If death data is available, I insert it, otherwise, I'm striving to find each soldier in at least a second source.
.
Let me know what you learn about these two families.
