Does anyone have any info on Chandler's in Erath County?
I'm searching for my great grandmother's parents. Her name
is Mattie Gertrude Chandler. She was born in 1890 in Texas,
I'm supposing in Erath County because that's where she was
married to Thomas Z. Parks in 1903 and she is buried there
in the Stephenville East End Memorial Cemetery. I have no
leads on her parents.
Any help will be appreciated..
Greetings! I have posted my family names in the past, but
thought I might "throw out the line" again. I am searching
for information regarding Unicy A. PHELPS. She married
Moses HOLYFIELD on Aug, 1843 in Wayne County, MS. They
came to Texas abt. 1870 and settled in Old Moulton, Lavaca
County, TX. Their children were: Ransom J. (1850-1930),
Lazarus (Bud) (1852-1940), Sine Jefferson (Jeff) (1853-1941),
John Henry Hays (1860-1939) and Amanda (Sis) (1862-1887).
It is believed that Unicy was of German descent. Any
information is appreciated.

We're so happy that you found your ancestors and shared it with the group.
We'd love to have more success stories like yours on our List!
I love the internet! :) I found my Danner line!!!!
Turns out that the wife of a Danner cousin of mine is a librarian
at the Dick Smith Library, Tarleton State Univ. in Stephensville,
in Erath Co. :))) what a coincidence. She did research for and helped
write at least one book on the Danner line. See
http://www.getzendanner.com for more info on the books.
I had been searching for Jesse Danner, who I had thought was
descended from John and Lena Danner. Turns out John was Jesse's
older brother. John had a daughter named Jessie, which may be
where the confusion came in. Jesse Danner's father's name was
Jacob. Here is my Danner line:
Christian GETZENDANNER & Anna Barbara BRUNNER
Jacob GETZENDANNER & Catherine KAST
Thomas GETZENDANNER Jr & Amelia STOKES
Thomas GETZEN-DANNER Jr & Alice Ann (Nancy) BATES
Jacob DANNER & Paralee Allie GAMBLE
Jack David (Jesse Danner) UNDERWOOD (21 Dec 1879 - 12 May 1938)
& Rebecca Surilda CHRONISTER (3 Aug 1885 - 3 Mar 1977)

Van Rose MOORE (5 May 1935 - 18 Feb 1991)
& Maria Elena RODRIGUEZ (16 Dec 1935 - 27 Mar 1989)
Walter Byron MOORE (25 Jun 1963 - )
Thanks for all the help!
Marion David ROBERTSON was shot and killed while making an arrest in Erath
County TX on 29 Mar 1879. I have a letter written to my great grandfather,
Marion's brother, dated 26 May 1927 which says Russ Holloway turned himself in
for the killing nearly 50 years after the crime. This is said to have come
newspaper article in the "Dublin paper".
What would the name of this newspaper be?
Would it be possible to get a copy of the article?
Are there any other sources of information available on these two events?
Your mail bounced back and so did the Erath Co. address (my
fault, left off TX)....

From late 1700s through 1840's my family was in GA. They begin
to migrate into ALA, Conecuh, Pike, and surrounding areas, my direct
not arriving until 1870. From ALA they came into Leon Co. TX bef
1880, then into Limestone/Freestone Co. TX for several years before
landing in Erath Co. TX.
While I'd love to fit them with the other ADKISSONs of
Leon/Limestone Co. I haven't been able to.
Those came out of TN and maybe fit your line. I remember the name of
Wm. Scott ADKISSON from TN, you might look for info. on him. Perhaps
your Eliz. is a sister.

When I saw UNDERWOOD I ran tomy fiels because I have one
UNDERWOOD connection there. I'm not sure I can hep you but I have
Frank Croiel ADKISSON "Frankie" b abt 1878 Jewett TX and d. 1925 md.
Tom B. "T.B." UNDERWOOD. They had 7 children.
Brence, Marshall, Turner, J.B., Nina, Velma, Cleo.
Brence with his aunt for awhile after his mother's death.
Marshall and his wife never ahd chlidren but took in a
ADKISSON's cousins child upon her death.
Cleo md. Ernest DOTSON
Cleo died young and her 4 youngest children were adopted
out. NO more known abt.them.
sorry......when I saw you were looking for adoption and UNDERWOODs I
remembered there were some adoptions in this family and thought they
might connect but it sure doesn't look like it.
I am searching for the family of my ggrandfather,
Jesse Danner; his parent's names were John Danner
and Lena (maiden name uknown). Jesse is supposed
to have been born on 21 Dec 1879 in Morgan's
Hill (which no one has heard of), TX, but its
possible that he was born in any of these places:
Morgan (Bosque Co.), Morgan Mill (Erath Co.),
Morgan's Point (Harris Co.), or Morgan's Point
Resort (Bell Co.), Texas.
Apparently his family moved to Bragg City Missouri.
He was given to an Underwood family while there,
when his parents could not care for him (but I do
not know when this occured). The Underwood family
named him Jack David Underwood, which he went by
after that time. The next info I have on him is that he
married Rebecca Surlinda Chronister on 4 Dec 1901
in Clarksville, Johnson Co., Ark. His children were born in
Johnson Co., Ark. and lived in Perry Co., Ark. He died in
Bragg City, Pemiscott Co., Mo, and is buried in Houston,
Perry Co., Ark.
It is possible that Jack's father, John may have been born
around 1850-1860. I recently found, via family history,
the names of the other children of John and Lena Danner:
Brothers: Ross (m. Emma), Buford, Oran (maybe Orrin?)
Sisters: Hazel (m. Bill), Velma, Paralee, Clara, Myrl, Opel
The reason I am posting is that there was a Ross DANNER who
lived in Stephenville, Erath Co., Tx. According to the SSI,
he was born on 6 Apr 1905 and died Aug 1984. Does anyone
recall this person, or the family? It is possible this is my
gg-uncle, or (more likely) his son....
Any information you could give me would be most appreciated.
