Ann Curtis (1832 Louisiana-after 1870) and Peter Cauble, Jr. (1829 Alabama-1857 Texas

grandparents, Anne McCollister and James S. Curtis. On 15 November 1850, he was living
with his parents in Tyler County. 

In 1855 he moved with his parents from Tyler County to McLennan County, Texas,

When he had reached age 19, James Monroe Cauble married Arrena Melinda Hardin (1852 Buchanan 
County, Missouri-1928 Wichita County, Texas; buried Riverside Cemetery, Wichita County, Texas),
daughter of Louisa Matthews (18 February 1818 Illinois-13 June 1898 Eastland County, Texas; 
buried Zion Hill Cemetery, Eastland County, Texas) and James Hardin (1800 Tennessee-after 
1870 census) and sister of Julia L. Hardin MH2, on 02 September 1869 in McLennan County, 
Texas. The young couple remained in that county for nearly ten years, living first with 
the Hardin family. Two sons were born to them before they migrated to Callahan County, Texas,
by 1879. On 13 November 1879 Jim Cauble, a resident of Callahan County, registered his brand
in that county as Jim on the right hip and Cauble on the right side of the animal. His 
family was recorded on the federal census taken in Callahan County on 05 June 1880.  On
15 October 1883, J. M. Cauble and wife conveyed land in Callahan County. By 19 April 1910
the family lived in Fisher County, Texas. 

James and Arrena Cauble made their last move in 1912 when they settled in Wichita 
County, Texas, to live out their days. James Monroe Cauble, a member of a Missionary 
Baptist church for nearly fifty years and of an Odd Fellow Lodge for thirty-seven years,
was married to Arrena Melinda Hardin for forty-nine years and lived in six Texas counties.
