My Great Great Grandfather, Ambrose D. Fitzgerald is my elusive one.  My currently living Fitzgerald cousin and I have been trying for several years to find out more about his Great Grandfather and my GGGrandfather.  We figure he was born around 1833, possibly in MS, but we're not certain.  My cousin had been given a picture of a young man, his wife and a child.  On the reverse of that picture were the notes that this young family was of "cousin Willie Fitzgerald and family".  I was able to track down cousin Willie to Bandera and Gonzales Counties in Texas.  Cousin Willie was born in Texas in 1840, but his father and uncles were from GA, though some of his older cousins and siblings were born in MS. I have a great deal of information on Cousin Willie and his family, including father and grandfather and the story that some of our Fitzgeralds came to Texas in 1835/6.  But in those accounts, there is nothing about our Ambrose.  He just sort of appeared in 1860, in the employment of another of our GGGGGrandfather's, Henry Boyd, in Coryell County, Texas.  We know he was alive for the 1900 census, but passed away sometime before the 1910 census. We don't have anything that we've been able to come up with to find his parents' names, nor exactly where he was born nor died.

Ambrose D. Fitzgerald married Sarah A. Boyd 19 Jan 1871 Coryell Co., TX

He was born in 1831 in Dallas, TX  His father was born in TN.

Another Ambrose Fitzgerald was born in TN in 1836

I hope one of the above is the one you are asking about. Another by the same first and last names was born in MI in 1887, wife name is Ida.
