    --  Holden,

    The 1900 census records Hattie R Price appears as the wife of Isaac Jefferson Briscoe in Parker County, Texas.  She is his 3rd wife.

    1900 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 4 June, Voting Precinct 4 Outside Weatherford, District 65, Page 2B, House #26, Family #27
    Briscoe, Isaac J Head W M Jun 1832 67  Married 19 years  MO TN TN Farmer  Owns Farm
    Briscoe, Hattie R  Wife W F Aug 1843 56  Married 19 years  6 children/6 living MS TN TN
    Briscoe, Sarah Dau  W F May 1883  17 Single TX MO MS At School
    Briscoe, Henry  Son W F Feby 1885  15 Single TX MO MS Farm Laborer

    Note that this census reports that Hattie was born in Mississippi.  I have found that most genealogies report no place of birth.

    In 1910, Hattie (nickname for Harriet) is spelled as Hettie, usually a short form of Hester.  Isaac and Hettie/Hattie's son Henry and his wife Lena are living in their household.

    1910 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 4 May, Justice Precinct 1, District 65, page 11A, Weatherford Thorpe Springs and Granbury Rd, Hse #180, Fam #180
    Briscoe, Isaac J  Head M W 77 Marriage 2 Married 28 years MO TN TN None, Own Income Owns [b abt 1833]
    Briscoe, Hettie Wife F W 67 Marriage 2 Married 28 years 7 children/6 living MS TN TN [b abt 1843]
    --  Hse #180, Fam #181 --
    Briscoe, Henry  Head M W 25 Marriage 1 Married 5 years TX MO MS Farmer Rents [b abt 1885]
    Briscoe, Lena Wife F W 23 Marriage 1 Married 5 years 0 children TX CA AL Farm Laborer [b abt 1887]

    I find her name as Hattie or Hettie in various sources.  S H Norton, in comments on Isaac Jefferson Briscoe's obituary, refers to her as Hettie, as some genealogies do.  Hattie's own obit spells her name as Hattie.  Hattie may have been her actual name, or it may have been a nickname for her full name Harriet.  I have not seen a record with her name as Harriet.  In the 1920 census she is again Hettie.

    1920 Federal Census, Parker County, Texas, 2 January, Justice Precinct 1, District 37, page 1A, Weatherford & Balch Rd, Hse #11, Fam #12
    Brisco, Hettie  Head Owns F W 76 Married (?) MS Unknown Unknown No Occup [b abt Nov 1843]
    Wooley, Sarah Wife F W 36 Married TX MO MS Housekeeping [b abt 1883]
    Wooley, Auther Son-in-law M W 39 Married TX TX MO Carpenter [b abt 1881]
    Wooley, Derrel M W 16 Single TX TX TX [b abt 1903]
    Wooley, Glenn M W 14 Single TX TX TX [b abt 1905]

    Notice that the name in her obit is spelled Brisco.  The surname is spelled both ways in family and public records over the decades.  It is generally spelled with the E.


    Mrs. Hattie Brisco, widow of the late I.J. Brisco, died at the family home in the Harmony community Friday morning [31 Dec 1920] at 4:30, following an illness of several days.   Mrs. Brisco was 77 years of age and has been a resident of this county for many years.   She is survived by six children as follows:   Mrs. R.W. Brisco, Altus, Oklahoma; Mrs J.R. Wooley, Elmer, Okla.: Mrs. D.M. Bull, Weatherford; Mrs. W.M. Staggs, Gallup, Okla.; Henry Briscoe, Weatherford and Mrs. Arthur Wooley at home.

    Funeral services will be held at the Harmony church, Saturday afternoon [8 January 1921] at 2:30 o'clock by Rev. C.H. Ray with burial at the Harmony cemetery.
