My great Uncle was Dr. Musgove of Huckabay Texas in the early 1900. I am try
to find out how I can get information on him. Would he have had a license in
Texas? How Would I get a copy? He when to school in Al.
Is there anyone out there that mite remember him, that was a long time ago. I
am looking for any information. Thanks if any one can help.
I checked "The New Handbook of Texas." No Millerville there, either.
"The New Handbook of Texas" is on line at
If it is not in the Handbook, it did not exist.

Jesse Walton left the Traveller's Rest Inn , Toccoa, Ga. for the Georgia
Gold fields. and his, son in law Gen. Joseph Martin sold it to Great
Great Great Grqandad Gen. James Rutherford Wyly. Contact State of
Georgia, Dept of Natural Resources for the book Traveller's Rest and the
Tugaloo Crossroads from them or by loan through your local library. See
you later if you don't find something. Also check passports issued by the
Georgia Governor for Traveller into the Cherokee nations. At first Jesse
had a lease from the Cherokee Nation to build the In . His great- great
grandson in Waco is Mack Mullins . Mr. Mullins retired from the Region
12 Education Service center here and tells of Jesse being shot by an
arrow through his window. He then built windows higher from the ground.
Was it Indians or Torry politicians dressed like Indians to cause Rebel
Colonists trouble? It was before 1812.
Mr Mack Mullins now volunteers on line and in person in the Waco-
McLennan County library Geneaology Department.
See you later, when you run this down.

Jesse Moody Waltom married a Cruce/Crews in Coweta Co., GA ca 1858 and
shortly thereafter moved to Stephenville, Erath Co., TX. They had at least 3
Newspaper clippings from Erath Co., TX show Jesse in that area in 1900.

Sorry I've been so long on a reply. I suggest you subscribe to either of these

searching SELLERS>BALDWIN>DENNY Erath co. mid 1800-present
Hi...just joined the list. Here is the family I'm researching:
Charles NEELY, born 1823 Virginia/Tennessee. Married first in Tennesse circa
1844. Wife apparently died early 1850's. Two boys were born to Charles and
his first wife - Isaac Newton, born 1845 TN and Arthur Vinson, born 1847 TN.
Records for the boys state that they moved to Texas in 1851. Charles
possibly married Jane NEWTON in May 1852 in Ellis County. Charles and
"Linny" NEWTON are in Stephenville, Erath County in the 1860 Census with two
more sons - John J. age 3 and James E. age 1.
I found the two older boys in 1870, but not Charles and his family. Same
goes for 1880, except John J. is now married and with a young son. All are
still listed in Stephenville. In 1890 one of Arthur's daughter dies and is
buried in the Duffau Cemetery. By 1900 Isaac and his family has moved into
Palo Pinto County and he has married Nancy Jane COLLINS, daughter of Jesse
and Elizabeth (DUNCAN) who were living in Hood County. I still can find
nothing about Charles or Linny in the census, but according to the Erath
County Appeal, dated Feb 1, 1900, Mrs. Linny Neely is still living because
she wins a court ruling in the case concerning the killing of her husband (I
am assuming this to be Charles). Isaac Newton NEELY's family eventually
moves up into Oklahoma, while many of the other family members remain in the
Erath/Hood/Parker/Palo Pinto County area.
If anyone can add anything at all to the information I have on this family I
would be greatly appreciative.
Thanks, Linda, thanks for the info.
Any idea about where to find an accurate record of Roger's Rangers who
marched from the American Colonies to Quebec in the dead of winter? I
heard on a PBS tv program that one of these Rangers under William Rogers
was a James Wyly & family stories say one James went back to England then
returned to the American Colonies. I suspect we have 2 entries of the
same immigrant. Did British troops return to England, or were some
discharged in the Colonies? immigrant
Also, how about Daniel Boone's party of Longhunters. I suspect my Carey
and Stone ancestors were with him- they were old settlers weat of the
Smokies when John Sevier built Fort Watauga. I know Col. Ben Cleveland
was Daniel's sometimes hunting partner- our Cleveland histories have
tales of this.

I am having a hard time finding any information on my RANEY(rainey)
My great-great grandmother was MARY FRANCES RANEY who married ERASTUS L.
BRADLEY. They were born in Schuyler Co., MO and then settled in Erath Co.
Mary was born in 1860. She had a sister named SARAH ISABELL RANEY who
married Erastus' brother, JAMES WALTER BRADLEY.
I did recently find that Mary Raney's parents were STEPHEN and
MOLLEY E. RAINEY, both born in Tennessee and settled in Schuyler Co., MO.
Anyone heard of these? Kim
I am Annabeth Howard Courteau. I was born and raise in Huckaby TX. My family
has a long history there. I am do genealogy on the Cupp, Musgrove, Howard and
I was very glad to find this site since I now live in Florida.
I am looking forward to being on this list.
Good one, Tommy. I just finished a 100 page plus history of Wyly since
1700 " some Clevelands & Seviers since 1600s for the reunion next week.
While prepareing it on the computer I found 5 tintypes in Mattiwe Roberts
Somerville boxes. Photographic camers came in just before the Covil War.
Some tell me one of the tintypes was of an ancestor of 1820- 1840's. How
old are tintypes? Didn't they have them in France in early 1800's?
I have seen this tintype on a photo film. It must have come to Mattie
through Sparks- Wyly connections.
A very good message. I have on my desk now a print from a tin type. Of WHO??
It has my grandfathers address on the back but who is the picture of? I
started several years ago wring on the back of mine but you know you get busy
and forget as more pictures are made. I have lots that need writing on. I
have my mothers pictures and can't identify all of them. It is really a shame.
This is a powerful message, thanks for posting it. I have plenty of
pictures from my late mother-in-law I would love to have identified.
However, most of the older generations have died, and if I could only find
someone who could help me.
So, now I need to go through my 17 albums of pictures and make sure they are
identified. Plus, get the storage box pictures at least identified.
Thanks for the reminder.

Would like any information possible regarding WILLIAM HENRY FOSTER, born
1852 in Iowa, son of John or Jonathan.. He was a well driller in Erath Co.
Lived mostly in Dublin,TX. Wife was NANCY JANE JACKSON, born abt 1862.
Nancy was the daughter of SIMON JACKSON and M. ELIZABETH DUKE, and the
granddaughter of LITTLEBERRY DUKE. She was the niece of Mrs. JOSEPH (SARAH
M) REEVES. William and Nancy were married in May 1877 in Comanche Co.,Tx.
Most of William and Nancy's 10 children were born in, or near, Dublin, Tx.
They are listed there on the 1900 census. William probably died shortly
after 1900 and Nancy eventually moved to Arizona.
Do these people sound familiar to anyone? They are my great grandparents.
Can share information of descendants, etc.
