Col. Henry Petty Cayce1

b. 5 September 1819, d. 21 November 1875
     Col. Henry Petty Cayce was born on September 5, 1819 in Williamson County, Tennessee.2 He was the son of Thomas Dodson and Hannah (Stanley) Cayce. The family came to Texas in December 1829, and Thomas Cayce received a league of land on the Colorado River, just below the present Wharton-Matagorda county line. Where the road from Columbia to Goliad crossed the river he built a ferry that became known as Cayce's Ferry. In the fall of 1835, just a few days after his sixteenth birthday, Henry Cayce, under the command of Captain Goodwin and Philip Dimmitt, rode to Goliad to capture La Bahía from the Mexicans.
     After the war Cayce's father sent him back to Tennessee to finish his education. He studied law and returned to Texas four years later. He came home just in time to learn of the death of his brother, George Washington Cayce, who was killed by Comanches at the Council House Fight in San Antonio. In March of 1842 he joined Albert Clinton Horton after the invasion of Rafael Vásquez. In September he joined Colonel Horton again when Gen. Adrián Woll and a thousand Mexican troops captured San Antonio.2
     Col. married Mary Frances Slade, daughter of Henry Clinton Slade Sr. and Charlotte Ewell Weems, on December 13, 1842 in Matagorda County, Texas.1 He started buying land in Wharton County and became a prosperous farmer with extensive holdings. He owned many slaves but was a kindhearted man and never sold any of them.

     
In 1846 he served with Gen. Zachary Taylorqv in the Mexican Warqv and fought at Matamoros. He was elected county commissioner of Wharton County in 1848 and served until 1852. In 1861 he joined the Confederate Army and was commissioned a lieutenant in Col. Joseph Bates's Fourth Texas Volunteer regiment. On October 22, 1861, Cayce placed an advertisement in the Columbia Democrat and Planter asking for volunteers to join the 'Flying Artillery.' One of the first to answer the call was his sixteen-year-old son, Henry P. Cayce, Jr. Father and son rode off to fight this war together. Henry Cayce spent four years using the big guns of his artillery battery to keep the Yankees from invading the Texas coast. By 1865 he was a lieutenant colonel and was sent to Louisiana to stop the Union forces from overrunning Texas from the east.

     
After the war he returned again to Wharton County. His slaves were gone, the land was overgrown, and he had no money. He practiced law in Wharton for a few years, but the problems of Reconstructionqv were too much, and he decided to move on and start over again. In the winter of 1873 he set out for Coryell County with his wife, most of their nine children, and many members of both of their families. Many illnesses and some deaths occurred on the long, cold trip. The caravan stopped in Milam County to rest and to let Cayce practice law for a while because they needed the money. But without recovering from the cold and exposure of the trip he died on November 21, 1875 at age 561 and was buried in Davilla, Milam County, Texas.1

Shadrach Cayce1

b. 19 December 1818, d. 1 July 1884
     Shadrach Cayce was born on December 19, 1818 in Williamson County, Tennessee.1 Shadrach Cayce came to Texas in 1834 and first settled on a large plantation at Old Caney in Matagroda County, TX. At age 16 he joined the Texas Army in the war for Texas Independence and fought with General Sam Houston. Shadrach was 2nd Lt., 32 Brig. T. M. August 1861. He also served in Captain Thomas Stewart's Matagorda Volunteers and was in the Siege of Bexar. After the war Shadrach had a plantation on Old Caney about ten miles below the town of Wharton where he kept open house to his throng of friends up to and all through the Civil War and until the pinch of the Reconstruction destruction induced him to sell out and move to San Antonio. He was a low stature, heavy build, muscular, round shouldered, with one shoulder a little drooped, dark complected with a heavy suit of dark brown hair that covered densely all scalp and strictly limited a forehead. He had a twinkle of strong intelligence in his eyes; cheery but disciplined humor touched his lips; and force marked his jaw and chin. He was the best of farmers, and a good financier, who always had time and means for doing constant hospitality without neglecting his business. He made many friends, valued, enjoyed and firmly held them.

He later moved to Wharton Co., TX, then he and Mary lived on Lavaca Street (between 2nd and 3rd Streets) in San Antonio, TX where he practiced law. His office was known as 'Cayce and Carleton, Real Estate, Law and Financial Agents'. It was located between Houston and Commerce Streets. He had land grants on the northeast side of the Frio River in Bexar Co., now LaSalle Co.2

Shadrach Cayce married first Susan Virginia Slade, daughter of Henry Clinton Slade Sr. and Charlotte Ewell Weems, on November 25, 1845 in Matagorda County, Texas.1
     Shadrach married second Mary E. Young on December 25, 1849.3,1 Shadrach Cayce died on July 1, 1884 in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, at age 65.1 His death was the result of a fever he contracted during a prospecting journey to the mines of Mexico a few weeks earlier. His funeral was at 4:30 in the afternoon of July 4th, 1884 at the family residence on Lavaca Street under the auspices of the Alamo Lodge of Masons.

Asenath Otis Slade1

b. circa 1811, d. 3 January 1899
     Asenath Otis Slade was born circa 1811 in Alexandria, District of Columbia. [Prior to 1850, this portion of Virginia was designated as within the District of Columbia]2 She was the daughter of Charles Slade and Mary Otis.1
     Asenath married Mason Locke Weems , II, MD, son of The Rev. Mason Locke Weems and Frances Ewell, on July 6, 1829 in Bellair, Prince William, Virginia.3 Asenath Otis Slade died on January 3, 1899 in Texas. Asenath Slade will never be forgotten in the Weems family because of a codicil she attached to her will in 1895. She reconsidered how she had distributed the property between the families of her son, Mason Locke Weems III and her daughter, Zuleika, deceased, and decided that a more even division would result if she deeded to her daughter's children a 500 acre farm in Wharton County known as the Banard Place. Asenath could not know then that this would be the site of one of the richest oil fields in Texas. The will has been contested but the codicil holds and many people without a drop of Slade or Weems blood draw the royalties.1
