CREWS, NISBETT, RILEY posted by Marjie Riley Lebens on Tuesday, April 29, 1997

I'm looking for any information on James Girard NISBETT. "Nez" was my uncle (by marriage) and he was born 27 May 1890 in Alabama. We believe he lived in Childress as a youngster; and we believe his mother's maiden name was CREWS. Uncle "Nez" married my aunt, Gladys Gertrude RILEY in 1916 in Quanah (Hardeman Co). In abt 1932, he and Gladys opened the First State Bank of Dodson. I have a copy of my aunt's diary written between 1932 and 1936 which tells about Nez's many trips to Childress so I must assume there was still a connection there (it's possible it was only business connections). Uncle Nez has always been somewhat of a mystery. He died in 1954, when I was only 11. To an 11 year old, 64 was dreadfully old! The only thing I really remember about him was that he loved brand new cars, and, with the exception of the 1930's, he always drove a new Cadillac and loved to drive fast! Because he was instrumental in starting the First State Bank of Dodson, and later the First State Bank of Dumas, I assume he would be listed in a "Who's Who&", but I've no idea how to obtain the listing if there is one. Any help I might receive about him will be gratefully appreciated. My aunt was such a wonderful woman, I'd like to be able to complete the history I have on her by adding more information about her husband; and, as I said, he is somewhat of a mystery (and I'd love to solve it!). Thank you so much in advance, and happy searching to all. Marjie (Riley) Lebens

BARCROFT, BOYKIN, MEDFORD, RILEY posted by Marjie Riley Lebens on Wednesday, April 30, 1997

My paternal grandmother was Amanda Emily BOYKIN / BARCROFT RILEY, born Apr. 1864 in Hamilton Co TX. When Amanda was abt 4, her mother died and she was sent to live with L. O. and Sarah BARCROFT. They formally adopted her in 1872 when she was 8 years old. Her biological parents were: S. R. BOYKIN and Emily MEDFORD (at least I believe her mother's maiden name was MEDFORD). She had several siblings, I've been told; however, I've been able to locate only one of them. Sidney J. BOYKIN was born in 1862. Recently I went through the 1880 Federal Census for Bosque County Texas and found S. R. BOYKIN living there with his 2nd wife, Elizabeth Isabella MEDFORD, and Sidney (age 20). I also found Amanda living with L. O. and Sarah BARCROFT. I am interested in ANY information anyone might have on the BOYKIN'S or BARCROFT'S. I've been looking for the BOYKIN's for over 15 years and have only recently been successful at finding them. Any help you can give me will be gratefully appreciated. Warm regards to all searchers!
