I am looking for information on the marriage of John Madison WHITWORTH [b. March 6, 1875 MS] and Katrina KOOP (pos. listed as Katherine or Katy) [b. March 17, 1875 KS]. Family stories have them married on October 10, 1895 in Bell County, Texas - but was told they were unable to locate it there.

Any information or help would be appreciated! I would love to exchange information with anyone researching either of these families. Thank you, Teresa.

Looking for death date and place buried for James F. PARKER. He and his wife Almeda left Dallas County area in 1890, he listed in the census as having TB. He died while they were gone to look for land...I think he went somewhere south of Dallas to find better climate for his TB and died. Family would like to know when (sometime in 1891) exact date and where he is buried.

Albert Jackson("Fret")McFARLANE (1871-1918) was my grandfather. He married Amanda CAMPBELL (1881-1963) in 1904 in Anderson Co. Thanks lots!

I'm looking for parents/siblings/children of Albert Gallatin CAMPBELL, b 1806-8 SC, m Sarah (PIERCE?) TN. He came to TX in 1839, before Anderson Co was organized, camped where the present courthouse now stands, and raised a large family in Anderson Co. His eldest son, John CAMPBELL, was my gr-grandfather, & farmed 5-6 miles SE of Palestine until 1876. I know there were other sons named William, Jim, Alex, and Albert,(one son died in the Civil War),daughters named Elizabeth, Sarah, Isadore (m Jim WEISINGER). (Should be 11 or 12 total) I'd appreciate any information on this family and those "who went before". Thanks!
