Wm and Kate then had twins Ella L. and George Edward "Ed" CARLISLE Mar 10 1878. Some time between then and 1880 both Wm and Kate died and the children were all seperated.

BOWMAN, CAUTHRON, GRAHAM, PEROT, RAYBIRN, RAYBURN, STORY posted by Teresa (Graham) Coffie on Monday, May 5, 1997

GRAHAM: Researching my GRAHAM family lines. Would like to talk to anyone interested in the Graham surname.The fartherest back I have gotten is William Graham in Camden Dist., Claremont County SC and he and some brothers were supposed to have dome there from England but I have gotten no further back will keep working on that. Apparently we had several Grahams that blazed trails out west, we had one woman that made the Dallas paper a Tennessee Texas Graham Bowman! She was said to be a character and her daughter married a Perot. Tennessee Texas (Mary) Graham was born March 31,1831 in Perryville,TN. The daughter of Robert Crawford Graham and his first wife, Mahaly Cauthron Graham, Maternal Grandparents were Samuel CAUTHRON(died April 1,1831) and Susannah Cauthron (died April 8,1830). Her paternal grandmother was Sarah Bruton/Bunton/Newton? born 1768, Scotland died Dec. 15,1827 in Davidson County, TN. And grandfather was John Graham Sr., born 1760 Scotland died Oct 6, 1827 in Davidson County, TN. Robert Crawford Graham born June 15,1809 in Randolf County, NC died Feb. 4,1873 Camp County, TX. When Tennessee Texas was 10 years old her family moved to Jefferson\Linden TX.The story of her journey was featured in the Dallas morning newspaper in April 1927. Her mother and father taught her sound Christian principles to live by and she was highly regarded by all. Her father married second to Nancy Hill STORY born 1821 in Tennessee, she was beloved step-mother to Mahaly's children. Probably it was Nancy H. Story Graham's brother who married James Newton BOWMAN to T.T. Graham (first cousins). Tennessee Texas Graham Bowman died Feb. 3 1928 at Bowmans Hill, Pinebluff, Red River County, Texas. She was also know as 'Aunt Tennessee' to everyone and stood over 6 feet tall. James Newton BOWMAN, born Jan. 7,1826 in Tennessee and T.T. Graham had a daughter Sarah Mahaly Hill Bowman, who married John Cassimer PEROT. They had several children.Ok a short on another one . Elizabeth Graham married c. 1807 General John King RAYBURN probably in Wayne County, TN. General John RAYBURN born Montgomery County, VA Oct. 11,1795 (father was Henry Rayburn born in Ireland?).From Perry County TN John and Elizabeth RAYBIRN moved to Panols County Mississippi where he farmed and was a physican. Elizabeth's father, father-in-law, husband and brothers were some of the men who carved their names in American History. John RAYBURN helped survey northern Mississippi. President Polk appointed him U.S.Marshall of the Northern District of Mississippi. He and his brothers made their fortune carrying cotton to market in New Orleans,LA on their own fleet of boats. They invested much of their money in land in Texas. Because of his influence in keeping the railroad out so his shipping business would not be hurt, John King Rayburn was gunned down as he was leaving his Panola County, MS jail. He died later April 10, 1856 of his wounds. Ther are many desendants of Elizabeth Graham RAYBURN living throughout Tennessee, Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas. There is much more I could write but don't know if their gonna say this is to long.:) Thankyou for your time and please contact me if you are interested in what I have or if you may have more info for me!

I am looking for information on the following surnames: MARTIN, BROWN, BAKER, FENTER, SWINNEY, and GILL. The first three are fairly common, and here's the information that I have on them. First, MARTIN: My dad's name is Danny MARTIN, he was born on August 17, 1947 to C.P. and Bennie MARTIN in Lubbock, Texas. My grandfather C.P.(Clarence Paul) MARTIN, all I know besides his name is that he was born on Oct. 18 I do not know the year, or whether he was born in Ar.,Ok., or Texas My great-grandfather Charlie MARTIN all I know is that his first wife died, and he remarried, and that he had children with both. Next, BROWN: My paternal grandmother's maiden name is Bennie BROWN, she was named Bennie, because she was supposed to have been a boy, but she was born on March 6, I believe in 1926, and I think she was born in Gaines Co. Texas. Her parents names were Earl, and Vera BROWN. I'm not sure about either side of my paternal grandmother's family, because my great- grandparents weren't close to their families. I do know that my dad's maternal grandmother's maiden name was BAKER. Other than that I have don't know anything else. FENTER is my mother's maiden name. My mom was born Marsha Kathleen FENTER on June 5, 1949 to Vernon and Mildred FENTER in Roswell, New Mexico. However, I believe that both of her parents were born in Texas, and I am unsure where. My maternal grandmother's maiden name was GILL, she was born to Calvin Augustus and Olga Helena GILL. Her mother's maiden name is Olga Helena SWINNEY. My great-grandfather on that side was born somewhere in Louisiana, and that is all the information I have, if anyone out there can help me find some more information, it would be greatly appreciated.

Daniel BRUNDAGE: B 1800 Gallatin Co. Kentucky, his wife Mary (Polly) KENDALL BRUNDAGE: b 1818 Gallatin CO. Kentucky or any of their large family of desendants. KY>;Sangamon Co. ILL>;Lansaster, Dallas Co. Tx 1856. Their son Albert BRUNDAGE was my great Grandfather. He married Anna KERNAHAN 1861 while in Texas Rangers and moved to Longton, Elk Co. Kansas and settled at Painterhood family homestead. There must be a lot of BRUNDAGES in Texas! I hope that this branch of the family will reach me. The BRUNDAGE name is mighty scarce everwhere else I have looked. Mary THOMSON
