KERBY/KIRBY

- Looking for information re: family of Joseph W. KERBY. This family appears on the 1850 census in Franklin Co, KY. Joseph and Zerilda and 6 children migrated to Tarrant Co, TX. After death of his wife Joseph moved to "Terrapin Neck" in either Wise or Parker Co. The names of his children were Susan (m. Frank Holden), George (m. Sara Ann Burke), Nancy, James (m. Adaline Nix), Elihue (m. Catherine J. Graves) and Elizabeth. I believe that he might have had 3 additional children born in Texas - Joseph, Jr., Zerilda and Mary. When Joseph came to Texas he brought slaves Arena Kerby and her son Sang who later was a noted Indian fighter.

KLEPPER MURDER MYSTERY

My great uncle, Ben Orville Burnett shot and killed his ex father in law,
W.T. Klepper, both of Paradise, Texas. The tial was held Oct 13, 1909.
Burnett was acquited. Seems it was a case of self defense. The trial
lawyers were: For Burnett; Carswell and Mc Murry. For the State of Texas,
Sen. Odell of Cleburne.

Can you help me locate where I can find the court
records or if there is a way to search for any newspaper accounts. The copy
of an old letter I have says that this trial was a major event so I would
assume some records still exist. My great grandfather Lafayette Burnett
had a farm some where in the Paradise area. He moved there after the Civil
War.
The bond set for Burnett was $2,500 and in 1909 I would assume that that was
a ton of money and meant that my great uncle must have shot someone of local
importance.
The shooting took place near the home of a Dill Lindsey.
Any thing you can tell me would be appreciated.

LEVERICH
Spent some time on your website. Was very impressed. Would
like to ask you a question. My g grandparents were, according to a
stitched sampler, married in Alvord, Wise Co, TX Oct 5, 1902. I have
written Wise Co and they do not have record of it.


The fact that the sampler was stitched to this data, would have to show
that it was correct. Can you tell me where else I might look? I know
Alvord is very small. They were members of the Church of Christ, and I do
not know at what date they moved to Willow, Greer Co, OK, but that is where
they lived, and my ggrandmother died 8 years later of childbirth, 1910. My
grandfather was the oldest. My g grandfather never remarried. They had
five children, and the last child, died ten years after his mother, of
appendicitis.

They were active members of the Church of Christ in Willow.
Is there a Church of Christ in Alvord, that might still have some records?
Would anyone know of how I could look for the minister at that time.


Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

I am researching the Jesse S. MARSHALL Family of Upshur County Texas. Jesse had 4 children who moved to Wise County. They are; Mary Ann & her husband, Richard BOYD; Lucy Ann and her husband, Lawrence L.; Martha and her husband, Madison WALKER; and his son John Shaw MARSHALL.

John Shaw MARSHALL was married two times. First to Elizabeth ?, and had two girls. After the death of Elizabeth, John married Bettie Bodriff a German girl who came to this country with her uncle. They had one daughter Mamie born in Gilmer Texas. John took Mamie to live with Lucy and Lawrence WARD. John died in Wise County 18 Jan. 1887 and is buried in the Deep Creek Cemetery in Wise County. Mamie lived with Lucy and Lawrence until she was 14 years old. Then went to Boonesville to live with her brothers and sisters. John, ?, Mary Ann D. 17 Jan 1912, Lucy Ann D 17 Jan 1919, Martha Jane D ? Jul 1921 the above are all buried in the Deep Creek Cemetery in Wise County.

Anyone having information on these families I would like to correspond with.

MARTIN
Seeking the buriel site of Thomas B. MARTIN, born 1833 in Mo, died sometime between 1875 and 1880. Last record we have of him is that of a land deal in Leon County in 1875. His widow, Sarah M. SANFORD Martin is listed in the 1880 census of Wise County with her four children-- thought she might have moved there to be near her family. She was the daughter of Henry and Sara Sanford.

Family story says that Henry Sanford was a 'traveling preacher'.
Any information about this family would be appreciated.

MASSIE
I am writing to you from Austin, having found you on the Wise County homepage. I am just beginning research into my Wise County ancestors surnames MASSIE and GARY. Specifically James Barnet(Barnett) MASSIE who lived in Newark between approximately 1880 and 1910. I believe he owned property and should be on the tax roles. Also Thomas J. GARY, about the same time period, also in Newark. James Barnet MASSIE married Harriet Louisa nee' GARY (daughter of Thomas J.) in Wise County about 1888. I think Thomas J GARY and Harriet Louisa Gary MASSIE died in Wise County. I would really appreciate ANY direction you can give me on beginning to discover more about my great and great great grandparents. I would be willing to make a trip to Wise County. Also, there is a possibility that MASSIE could be spelled MASSEY,but I think MASSIE is correct. Thank you so much, looking forward to hearing from you.

Searching for information on the MCMAHAN family of Wise County, TX. Several related households of MCMAHANs moved to Wise County from Saline County, MO, very shortly after the Civil War (c.1865/66).

Based on the limited information that I have been able to assemble, at least part of the family (including Wesley MCMAHAN and Henry Harrison MCMAHAN) was living in Brumlow and Greenwood in the 1880s and 1890s. At least part of the family later moved on to OK.

NEWSOM
I am a native of Montague County, Texas. I retired from the Army in 1986 and remained in El Paso, Texas, as that seemed like the thing to do at the time. I am tracing the Newsom family tree. The Newsom family is quite large, but I am only doing the portion that applys to my family. I am working on family tradition in this matter. According to family tradition, Daniel Newson migrated from Quincy, Illinois prior to 1860 to Jack County. I have not been able to find any trace of him. I got some e-mail the other day that told me that he migrated to Wise County. The Wise County Daniel Newsom meets all of the prerrequisites of my Daniel Newsom, but I need to verify if it is the right one. His father was John R. Newsom (I think) and his mother was Mary Abbott. I need to verify his parents, sister and brothers names. If you can help me out, I thank you in advance. My e-mail address is Bear450@aol.com.


Alan D. Newton--4-2-98

NEWTON
Alfred NEWTON in Oklahoma, Texas, or Missouri.... His wife was Mary Frances SULLENS DODDS. SULLENS was her maiden name and DODDS was her first married name. She was born in Gasconade County, Missouri, in 1853, and her marriage to Daniel Morgan DODDS took place on Dec. 29, 1870, in Maries County, Missouri.My great grandfather, Alfred NEWTON, was born in 1853. I have information that he was born in Gasconade County, Missouri, but I do not know if that information is reliable. I also have some indications that he may have been born in Texas, perhaps Jack County or Wise County.

I think Daniel Morgan DODDS must have passed away in the late 1870's and his wife Mary Frances moved to Wise County, Texas, I believe. I am not certain if her marriage to Alfred NEWTON took place in Missouri before she moved or in Texas after she moved.

Alfred NEWTON appears on the 1900 census for Oklahoma Territory living in Canadian County with his wife Mary F., daughter Mary A., son Arthur J., and daughter Myrtle. The census indicates that his daughter Mary A. was born in Texas in 1882 and his son Arthur was born in Oklahoma in 1889.

I think Alfred NEWTON died in about 1909 in, perhaps Roger Mills County, Oklahoma. Again, I do not have reliable information on this.

I am seeking information on Alfred NEWTON, such as his place of birth and death, names and birthplaces of his parents, date and place of marriage to Mary Frances SULLENS DODDS. I would appreciate any information that might help me get beyond this stumbling block.

Thanks in advance,
Alan Newton

Looking for information on Nina Belle HEFLEY NOLEN. She married Porter Wade Nolen and they had 3 living children: Hazel b 7-09-1900 d 2-13-1980, Robert 10-15-1903 d 2-1971?, and Ernest "Shorty" b 11-17-1905 d 7-26-1947. It was said that she died when Hazel was 12 yrs old, that she gave birth to twins, one was still born and the other only lived a few days, Nina died a few days later.

Thanks for any help.

Am researching the genealogy of Archabal Anderson Nowlin who married Synthia
Reed. One of their daughters, Louisa, married Robert Benson. Louisa was
born in 1847 in Hamilton County, Tn., and date of death is unknown. Robert
was born 1-2-l828 in Alabama and died 4-17-l926 and is interred in Chinn's
Chapel Cemetery in Denton County, Texas. Robert and Louisa at one time
lived in Wise County. I wish to know if they had children, and if so, how
many and their names plus any additional information which anyone could
provide. Also, I would like to know when Louisa died and where she is
interred.
