Hello to Erath County researchers again.
It has been quite a while since I've posted so maybe we have some new
listeners that will help me with my RANEY'S...?
Anyone have anything on the following family?
Marilda Ellen Raney
born: Nov 20-1849 somewhere in Tx.
died: July 10-1907 Erath Co Tx.
lived only 52 years + 2 months
Mar. Nov 28-1872 to:
Thomas Henry "Buford" Roberson
[I have quite a lot of info on him, including both descendants & ancestors.
Matilda Ellen Raney was the mother of my grandmother, Matilda Ollie Roberson.
She married John Wesley "Jepp" Stewart Dec 22-1892 in Erath Co Tx. and they
had 4 children there befor her death in 1904.
Matilda Ellen Raney's mother was Elizabeth Ramsey.
born: Jul 2-1825 somewhere in Ky.
died: May 23-1916 Hico, Hamilton Co Tx.
buried Duffau Cemetery
lived 90 years + 10 months
she was the 2nd wife of William Magee Roberson
married Oct 6-1875 Duffau, Erath Co Tx.
when they were married, Wm. Magee was 56 years old;
Elizabeth was 50 years + 3 months.
A good possibility that Ramsey is not be her maiden name?
I haven't been able to locate the father of Matilda Ellen Raney or any of her
Hope that someone in Erath Co. can help or point me into a direction.
Charles Wyle, said quite a while ago that he went to school with some Raney's
but I was never able to find any of them.
