Looking for info on Julius Lee WILEMON. I have been told that he died in Teague in 1969. He sometimes went by the name Lee WILEMON. He was born about 1875 in MS. Thanks Ellen Crawford

Richard SPENCE is my great great grandfather. I was wondering if he was a slave. I can't find him on the census reports before 1880. Any help would be appreciated. Billy R. White, Sr.

Searching for info on CLEMENT E. HEALD (b: Mobile, Ala.) married to my gr Aunt, SARA ANN MARANDA YOUNG HEALD(b: Mobile, Ala)
Clement E. Heald was working as a caligraphier for (?) RR in Mobile, Ala. Family records indicate that Clement and "Maranda" moved from Mobile, Ala to DONIE, Texas. (That part of the family history seems to be lost. However,many letters were forwarded to Maranda's brother: George Washington Young (Mobile, Stockton,TX) who was and Eng. with the same RR as Clement Heald.) Clement and Sara Ann Maranda had 2 children. CLFITON RUSH HEALD and INEZ HELAD. They may have been born there in Donie...I would like to get any info possible. Where to begin?
At some point in time they moved on over to Riverside, Texas. Clement owned the saloon, livery stable (had a General Store) and Sara Ann "Maranda" ran the Hotel there.
Clement death occured in 1916 in Riverside, Texas. He is buried in RIVERSIDE PIONEER CEMETERY in the HEALD Plot. Sara Ann "Maranda" Young Heald moved to San Antonio, Texas, however she is also buried in Riverside, Texas I would like to find inro on the HEALD FAMILY arrival in DONIE.....Thank you so very much,

Hello. I am searching the whereabouts of the Robert’s Family that may still be living in the area or their burial places. Not sure if I am connected to them, but Sarah Ann Roberts (maiden name and my great-grandmother) said her mother was from Alabama. I did see a Flora Roberts listed living in Freestone from the 1870 Census and 1880. Flora married Jack Gouldsby and had a son named Soloman Gouldsby. Other children listed as stepchildren: Sarah Roberts, Charlotte Roberts, Jim Roberts, Ben Roberts, Mary Roberts, Worthy Roberts. Also, there is an Addison Perry and Elsie Perry as Jack’s brother-in-law. Sarah Ann Roberts had several children last names Linthicum, Black and Alexander. Alexander is my family lineage. Sarah married my great grandfather Wm Alexander in Nacogdoches, Texas March 7, 1897. She is listed in Nacogdoches on the 1900 Census with her new husband William Alexander and stepchildren. On the 1910 census, she is now living in Dallas, Texas. I can follow Sarah from 1900-1930 censuses. She died in Dallas, Texas 10 May 1942. From the 1870 Census, I could not locate her because their last name was Roberta instead of Roberts. Also, while looking at Jim Roberts’ 1900 Census in the same area, It shows Jim Robert and Charlotte Roberts are married couples. But on the 1870 census, they are listed as brothers and sister? I need help. Thanks! firstname.lastname@example.org
