CRAWFORD posted by Jim Crawford on Sunday, December 7, 1997

Andrew Jackson CRAWFORD b. abt. 1831 moved to Tx from Mo. just after the Civil War. He had two sons, James Thomas CRAWFORD b. abt. 1850, mothers name could have been HALL. Andrew Jackson CRAWFORD b. abt. 1861 mothers name Amy YOKUM. One daughter name unknown and nothing known about her.They settled near Waco, Tx. In 1891 it seems as if both A J"s took up residence in Pottawatomie Co. Ok. between Pink and Burnett. I need more info to back this story up. AJ sr. is my ggrandfather.
BRUNSON posted by Wayne Harrison on Friday, December 19, 1997

I am searching for George W. BRUNSON, b. about 1856 in Clarke Co., AL. and died 1/25/1900 (I think). He left for Texas in 1894 after being falsely accused of murder and aquitted. I saw where he bought land in Loving County, Texas. He never returned to Alabama but his children did visit in the 1920's I was told by a woman that remembers them. Any information would be appreciated.
JAGO, JAGOE posted by Dexter Kenfield on Monday, December 22, 1997

Looking for John JAGO, wife Jane, son Frank (Francis) John was born in New Brunswick, Canada c. 1845. Moved to Boston c. 1875, then disappeared. Recent information suggests his son Frank was born somewhere in Texas c. 1878. They returned to Boston in 1880. John later went to Ohio, remarried, and again returned to Boston, where he died in 1900. Frank died in Boston in 1968. Would like to find links to Boston, possible connecting to other Jago/Jagoe lines originating in County Cork, Ireland.
JONES, JOYCE, PEELER, SCHULTZ, SMITH, TILGER, TRUEX posted by John & Donna Stuart on Tuesday, December 23, 1997

Looking for information on Helen JONES. I have been given conflicting facts about her. May have been born abt 1872, in Cameron (Milam) or Anson (Jones) or Anderson (Grimes), TX. Died about 1914. Supposedly she was an indian girl adopted at age abt 14, by Jim & Agnes JONES (supposedly from one of those three towns). She married James JOYCE, Jr, b abt 1872 (County Joyce?), Ireland, d abt 1935. He was son of James JOYCE, Sr, from Ireland, and Sara Margaret Peeler, from England (previously married to "James G SMITH" 22 SEP 1858?). James & Helen had children: 1) Doris Margaret JOYCE, b 15 Feb 1895 (in Anson, TX?); m Eli Orion TRUEX; d 29 Mar 1979, Seattle, WA 2) Paul JOYCE (m Marty) 3) Clare JOYCE (m John TILGER) 4) Henry 5) Jack 6) Kathryn JOYCE (m Gene SCHULTZ) 7 & 8) twins. Any information on any of these people would be appreciated. I would especially like to pin down who James JOYCE, Jr [I assume no close relation to the famous author) and Helen JONES are.

Looking for descendants of Charlie WRIGHT and Sina Elizabeth LORD WRIGHT. They came from GA to Alabama to Texas. Charlie died around 1879 and Sina around 1880 somewhere in Texas.

Looking for information on William WILKERSON (b. ca. 1841, Gallatin Co., IL), son of Marvel and Eveline (BRADLEY) WILKERSON / WILKINSON. William settled (or resettled) in Texas after the Civil War. He was known to have lived in IL, MO, & TX. On a visit to Missouri, told his niece Maude that he had named his daughter in her honor.
