TEXAN KID SHOW
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about a Texan Kid Show that possibly performed in the Grandview area. My great grandmother was originally from Grandview and I have possession of her photos. There are about 3 or 4 photos of this so called Texan Kid Show. The photos contain men dressed as cowboys. The names are written on the back, but it is difficult to know for sure the right spelling. In one picture, the cowboys are standing with my great great grandmother Ida Laird McDaniel. Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a great aunt that was born in Cleburne, Tx., 25 Feb 1905. Her name was Jewell Carver. Her parents were George W & Bettie Carver. The reason I am trying to locate a birth record for her is to try and figure out what George was doing there in 1905. I thought it might list his occupation. I think he had something to do with the railroad because he was a Texas Ranger in 1922 listed as a Railroad Ranger and may have worked the strike in Cleburne in 1922. After Jewell’s birth in 1905 the family moved back to Bell county where he was a farmer until 1922.
Any help would be appreciated,

Does anyone have information on Willie D. Kimbrow, son of Joseph T. Kimbrow? He was b. 1872 Mo d. 1880 Johnson Co Tx. Where is he buried ? Is a death certificate available with his mother's name on it? Researchers don't have it because the Mo records were destroyed 1870, but surely his father put it on his death record if Texas had records that far back. Joseph Titus Kimbrow is a brother of my grandmother. Would appreciate hearing from anyone connected.

I am looking for information on my G Grandmother, Rachel Ladona Brown who married Joseph Austin Collins about 1902 and is said to have died in Joshua, Johnson County, TX. in 1908. Ladona was the daughter of Ferdinand Jackson Brown and Minerva Elizabeth Clements. She first married Thadeus Constantine Penry and they had three children. I believe she and Joe Collins also had three more children. Information found at FamilySearch.org gives brief information on her Parents, Date of Birth, Marriage and Date of Death and Place - some of which is not correct and gives no sources for the information.
This is the only lead I have on where she might be buried. No Death Certificate or grave is known. Would appreciate any further information on Ladona and her marriage to Joseph. This new information about a second marriage seems to conflict with stories passed down through my family as to the timing of her death and the cause.
I Would love to hear any comments from anyone about Ladona any of these other people mentioned.

Mrs Hadie [GRIFFIN] Nunnelee
Seeking parents and siblings of Mrs Hadie [GRIFFIN] Nunnelee who was the 1st wife of my Great-Grandpa, Eugine Lavarsha Nunnelee. Hadie is buried in the Old Alvarado (Balch) Cemetery in Alavarado, Johnson County, Texas. Her gravestone reads: "NUNNELEE, Hadie N. wife of E. L. Nunnelee 21 March 1856 - 08 November 1884 aged 28 yr 7 mo 17 dy " There are probably kinfolk in this cemetery but I don't know who to look for..... Hadie [GRIFFIN] Nunnelee's father was W. T. GRIFFIN and he died in Johnson Co, Tx abt/before 1893 leaving land to his 3 grandchildren by his deceased daughter Hadie. I have searched for years but never found any information about Hadie's parents or her siblings - not even a census record. She and my G-Grandpa married abt 1873 and they had 3 children: Walter Eugene, Hadie Alice, and Robert Griffin. In 1893 my G-grandpa Nunnelee filed guardianship papers on behalf of his 3 minor children in Freestone County, Texas regarding some property inherited from his children's "grandfather, W.T. GRIFFIN of Johnson County, Texas." That's all I have to work with.
From the last 7 generations, the only living direct line male descendants bearing our surname Nunnelee are descendants of G-grandpa and Hadie's son, Robert Griffin Nunnelee.
I just can't stand it that Hadie is no more than a name and dates in our family's history !!! I will be forever indebted for any information you might share with me.

SEARCHING FOR DESCENDENTS OF ANDREW J. BASKIN & WIFE S.CATHERINE ELLIOTT
In 1900 Andrew & Catherine(Katie)were living in Tarrant Co., and on 1910 were in Johnson Co. TX, Justice prec.#7. I am told this area was located on the Venus-Lillian Hiway. In 1910 Andrew & Catherine Baskin were living with son Judge Allen Baskin & family. Next door to them was another son Simpson Baskin, wife Minnie Davis and their children. There was another brother Johnie Walker Baskin & Tishe Baskin who lived in Coryell Co., and another son Silas M. Baskin & wife Sara Frances(Sadie)Lowance, lived in Bosque Co.
I have heard that Andrew & Catherine Baskin died between 1912 and 1915, but don’t know where. Have not been able to find a death date on either, no cemeteries show them, or any other Baskins’, for that matter. There must be something, or someone that might have some knowledge of them?
I am trying to trace down, through some generations, to find out more info, and possibly, old pictures.

HUGHES, THORNTON, GANT, KEMP, DOGGETT, HENDERSON, SMITH
I am looking for descendants of Charlie and Truro THORNTON HUGHES. Charlie and Truro are listed in 1930 with two children: Clinton Hughes and Winnegienne Hughes. Charle died in 1958 and Truro in 1989. They are buried in Caddo Cemetery in Johnson County. Truro was the daughter of D. J. THORNTON and Izora Brown. D. J. THORNTON also had a son, Leonard THORNTON.
D. J. THORNTON was apparently my g-grandmother's brother or at least a half-brother. They had the same father, Silas R. THORNTON, b. 1828, and probably the same mother, Rhoda SMITH, 1832-1901. I would like to correspond with anyone who could tell me more about this family, for example, when and where did Silas R. THORNTON and Rhoda Smith marry? Who were Rhoda's parents? Did Silas and Rhoda have other children? Rhoda died in 1901 and is buried in Caddo Cemetery with son, D. J. THORNTON (1861-1934), Izora (1865-1942, and their family. Where did her husband, Silas THORNTON, die and where was he buried? D. J. was born in Hood County in 1861 according to his obituary and had lived about 50 years in Johnson County when he died in 1934. Yet, before his marriage, I cannot locate him or his parents in any census. Knowing that Rhoda died in 1901 and was buried in Johnson County, I still can't find her in the 1900 census.... Was she a widow of Silas who had remarried by 1900?
Silas R. THORNTON had two sisters who lived in Johnson County. Calpernie THORNTON GANT (1829-1885)and husband, James GANT, are buried in Caddo Cemetery. (GANT daughters married S. P. Henderson and William Daniel Doggett.) Silas THORNTON's other sister was Lodaska THORNTON KEMP (1833-1911), wife of Silas M. KEMP. Lodaska and her family are buried on the old KEMP homeplace in Johnson County, except for 2 stepsons, William KEMP, who is buried in Caddo Cemetery and Gilbert KEMP, buried in Jack County, TX.
I would appreciate any information on any of these families. I'd like to correspond with descendants of HUGHES, THORNTON, GANT, DOGGETT, or KEMP.

1870 Johnson County Census Look-Up
I'm looking for a family that migrated to Johnson County around 1870. Their mother may have died there, or died prior to moving. The family is:
William Burley Smith born around 1825 in Maine
Sarah Ann Sheppard Smith born in Tennessee
two of their children may also be listed:
Charles W. Smith born in Mississippi
Julia R. Smith
Because their mother died around the time, and their father was traveling between Louisiana and Texas, I'm not sure who they'd be living with at the time the census was taken. They supposedly lived in Cleburne in 1870.
Thanks, Sarah Aguirre

Richard Meredith HART
I am looking for information about the Richard Meredith HART family, and the Hart House. My husband is descended from Richard Meredith Hart's son Iredell Houston "Bay" Hart, whose son Andrew Jackson Hart came to the Vinson, OK, area about 1898. We have little information about the family in Johnson County. I would also like information on the CAVER and CLEMENTS families. Andrew Jackson Hart's wife Zella was a Caver and I believer her mother was a Clements. Some Clements also settled in the Vinson area. A family story says that Andrew Jackson Hart's mother died (cause unknown) and Zella Caver's father died (by diving into the Brazos River and hitting his head on a rock) when they were young and that their surviving parents married. I would like to confirm this also. All information will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!

That might indicate that they were not married in that county but the record is only in the book found at the Cleburne Library. Will someone do a look-up? Thank you….

inherited by his children's "grandfather, W.T. GRIFFIN of Johnson County,
Texas." I personally knew my G-Aunt Hadie & G-Uncle Bob and they both

John Edward Deegan
I am researching John Edward Deegan and his wife Margaret Kelly Deegan. They moved to Johnson Co. in 1899 and were in the 1900 census living with daughter and son-in-law, Margaret A. and Lance Jobling. Their son, James Deegan had also moved to Cleburne at the same time. I am trying to determine when and where Edward and Margaret Deegan died.
I noted in a Johnson Co. history that in 1903 a Mrs. James Deegan was a charter member of the Daughters of the Confederacy. This tracks with family lore that Edward served for the south. Also, both Edward and Margaret imigrated from Ireland, presumably to New York, but then were married and in New Orleans for the 1860 census.

W.T.R. Montague and Berta Johnson
I am looking for information on the Montague families from Johnson County around the later part of the 1800s. My Grandfather and Grandmother were married in the Johnson County Courthouse on July 22, 1894, which I have a copy of . It is not exactly a copy, it is a form that was sent to my Aunt in 1961 with the dates and names typed in, she looking for information on her Father. We only know that the name on the license was W.T.R. Montague and Berta Johnson. My Grandparents moved to Oklahma by 1900 and may not have owned any land in Texas. My Grandfather was born in Texas but I am not sure where, probably near Johnson County but can't be sure. As you can see, I am looking for a needle in a haystack, we arent even sure of his first name! He vanished from Oklahoma in 1907, leaving a wife and 5 little kids, and was never heard from again.
If you have any information or suggestion, please reply

I am beginning my search for any information about both living and deceased Ball relatives. I know that my paternal Gr Grandparents ( George ( or Charles) Ball, who married Ida Mary Boyd (or Mary Ida) in Johnson County, TX . Dates of marriage is confusing, as I have found records of "Charles" and Mary Ida being married in 1893, but found records of "George" and Ida Mary being married in 1899. The town given as their home town was "Vines". I assume this is misspelled for Venus, as I have found NOTHING on Vines,TX. There was only one child from this union, my grandfather, William Marion Ball. He was born in "Vines" Texas on March 12, but the year on all records of his birth was an estimation by members of the family as 1900. From calculations later made, he was born atleast 1 yr before that..making it 1899.. HELP! ANY information on any possible leads to other Ball family that may be related to me would be VERY appreciated. Thank you very much..

John (Jack) Shea
I am searching for any type of death record for my great grandfather, John (Jack) Shea, a railroad worker who reportedly (family story) died in June 1891 in or near Cleburne while working on the railroad. Story says he drowned while bathing/swimming in a water tank and was buried somewhere near the railroad tracks there. Search of the main Cleburne Cemetery revealed no record tho the caretaker said there are numerous unmarked graves in an old section near the tracks. My guess is that it would have been a pauper's burial, or possibly railroad managed, since he had no local family in the Cleburne area. He was divorced from my ggrandmother who was living in Austin County at that time. It occurred to me that since it would be considered an accidental death, there might be a coroner's report if such records were required as early as 1891. Does the Johnson Co. Genealogical Society have such information, and would there be anyone there willing to search such a record as well as local newspaper microfilm to see if it might have been reported in the paper? I would be willing to pay a flat fee of 50.00 for both searches.

William Tidwell & Amanda Stewart
I found a marriage for William Tidwell (age 62 in 1880 census Johnson Co) and Amanda Stewart(age 42 in 1880 census of Johnson) for 30 March 1879. All the children listed with them in Pct. 5 are Amanda's by two former marriages, to Tennyson/Tennison in MS and John G. Stewart of Burnet Co., TX. She did have one son Addison Tidwell by William born in 1881. Amanda's maiden name is Martin. The last child listed in the census is actually Robert Lee Stewart, not Tennyson as given on the 1880 census from Familysearch.org. Is anyone familiar with any members of this family? Amanda died in Erath Co., TX in 1909 but William Tidwell and Robert L. Stewart remain mysteries. Rose Parks RParks102@msn.com
