I am trying to find decendents of the following families. Some papers and
photos that belong to decendents of this family were found several years ago
in a shed and they have been given to me in hopes I can get them to their
rightful owners. One of the papers is a probate record for ALFRED F. COX
dated 1914. It lists his widow as MARTHA COX and children as DANIEL B. COX,
LIZZIE COX who married A.F. HAVENS, SUSIE COX who married ED JACKSON, ED
COX, L.R. COX, VIOLET COX who married A.J. SHAW, R.H. COX, W.B.COX, C.A. COX
who married ALICE and ELLA COX who married W.B. DAVIS.
This family was from the Johnsville area in Erath Co. Texas, and I have
found several of these people buried in the Johnsville Cemetery.
If anyone is or knowa of a decendent of any of these families please let me
know so I can get their records back to them.
This is also listed on my website under unsolved mysteries.

I am new to this list and want to add my names. My grandparents moved their
family to this area, Bosque or Erath Co., in 1888 when my father was 6 months
old. He was born in Boone Co., AR February 20, 1888 and their next child was
born February 20, 1891 in Iradell, Bosque Co., TX. My grandparents were Jacob
Silas MCELROY and Sarah Elizabeth YORK McElroy. My dad was Lester Lafayette
(L L) McElroy. Uncle Hubert was the one born in 1891. He died in 1938 in OK.
He married Edith McCormick in 1913 in Thurber, TX. Aunt Edith was born in
My dad's youngest brother, Oscar Lee (Pat) McElroy was born in Stephenville,
TX in July, 1893. My Grandmother McElroy died in October, 1895 and is buried
at Huckaby in an unmarked grave.
My grandmother's brother was Thomas Edgar (Ed) YORK. He and his family lived
in Bosque Co and he worked for the railroad. I think he lived in Erath Co
before being sent to Bosque Co. His wife was Missouri Campbell York. The
children I have listed for them are: Eddy M, born 1879 in AR; Charles A,
1880, in Ar; William A, Bosque Co; Berry M, 1885, TX; Rollis A, 1888, TX, and
Katy J, 1889, Bosque Co., died at 2 days of age; Thomas E York, Jr., 1890,
TX, and Morrison, 1893, TX.
I'll be glad to exchange data with anyone on the McElroy and York families.
