I saw the message from Jean Black regarding Hemby girls who married West
brothers, I answered her privately, but will tell the list I do have some on
this line. My husband descends from James Hampton West, can anyone tell me
his parents? I will share what I have.
I am a descendent of Wade Hampton West(1818-1891). He and wife Susan
had two sons who married Hemby girls, James married Amanda Hemby and
William Hampton married Miriam Hemby. They are on the 1880 census of
Wilson Co. Would love to trade information with you about any of these
Marcia sends her thanks and regards to all who have been so kind to her.
Noel- she got your pkg. : )
Ray- she has a lot of answers for u.
John H. HEMBY did not have a 3rd marriage. His middle name was Houston, as is
a son of his.
Marcia will be in Stockdale in May and hopes to meet you and answer your ?`s.
It would be worth the cost of a phone call to Marcia in NJ as she has tons of
"insider" info. I can`t remember the things she told me. I wish I had just 1
relative from my families willing to talk to me, LOL.
Thanx again, B-

Hi does anyone know any history about the Kopecki family who settled in
Panna Maria before moving to Kochuscho, Texas. I figure they arrived from
Poland around 1880s. The husband Wiajek Kopecki is buried at Panna Maria;
his wife, Mary, is buried in Kochuscho. I think they docked in Indianola,
Texas on the Gulf Coast. My grandfather, Steven, was born here in 1888?
the last of their large family.
Thanks for the help!

To All Whom It May Concern:
The purpose of this message is to inform all genealogists & researchers
who subscribe to TEXAS Rootsweb Lists, of a very important web site that
now has a searchable database of over 1,650 U.S. Regular Army soldiers
who once served at the short-lived Buffalo Barracks, between 1835 and 1846.
Many of these soldiers had fought in the Indian Wars in Florida and also
War with Mexican, and then the Civil War. It is without doubt that some of
descendants of these men are most likely in every county of the great state
IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT: The 1840 Census of Buffalo, NY lists Colonel
James M. Bankhead, of Virginia, and a total 'quantity' of 671 individuals,
ranging in age from 1 to 60, as being under his command and/or
Unfortunately, the census does not list each of these barracks residents
by name....only by 'quantity.' (ie. 426 males 20-30 yrs, or 34 females
HOWEVER, The Buffalo Barracks Historical Web Site has turned most of the
'quantities' into actual names. The list of these officers and soldiers
of their wifes and dependants...see the Barracks Notebook section)
are available, free of any charge.
The URL for this outstanding web site is:
[ http://www.buffalonet.org/army ]
There, you will discover the "Descriptive & Historical Register Data of
Enlisted Soldiers in the U.S. Army," for those who served at this
federal military post on the Niagara Frontier. Also available is a wealth
of rare and interesting information pertaining to the Buffalo Barracks
and it's unique historic value. I encourage everyone to take the time
to visit this site.
Perhaps you have an ancestor who once served there?
Enjoy your visit,
