Subject: TXGENWEB: Palo Pinto CO County of the Month
From: malcolm.basham@chrysalis.org

I am pleased to announce that Palo Pinto County has been selected as TXGenWeb County of the Month for May 1997. Sue Seibert has done a wonderful job of providing genealogical information about this county. Her listing on upcoming Family Reunions in the county demonstrates her involvement with the local Palo Pinto residents. She has also implemented surname query index for her county. Plus lots and lots of other genealogy info which a county visitor would like to have.
Take a look at the Palo Pinto page and see if you can pick up some ideas for your page.
And thanks to the County of the Month Nomination Committee headed by Dana Thomas for their input on this selection.

Genealogy Poem

Ain't this the truth !!

I started out calmly, tracing my tree,
To find if I could find the makings of me.
And all that I had was Great-grandfather's name,
not knowing his wife or from where he came.
I chased him across a long line of states,
And came up with pages and pages of dates.
When all put together, it made me forlorn,
Proved poor Great-grandpa had never been born.
One day I was sure the truth I had found,
Determined to turn this whole thing upside down.
I looked up the record of one Uncle John,
But then I found the old man to be younger than his son.
Then when my hopes were fast growing dim,
I came across records that must have been him.
The facts I collected made me quite sad,
Dear old Great grandfather was never a Dad.
I think someone is pulling my leg,
I am not at all sure I wasn't hatched from an egg.
After hundreds of dollars I've spent on my tree,
I can't help but wonder if I'm really me..
Found on Roots-l

Hi Mike, sorry to bother you but I dont know how to put a msg up for the Palo Pinto Area. In looking thru the queries from researchers it appears that they should be made aware of a 2 volume book by Charles S. McCleskey titled "A short History of the Patilo community of Erath County, Texas". It actually takes in Hood, Parker, Palo Pinto Eastland, Comanche,Bosque, as well as Erath county. My Families Sublett, St. Clair , Richardson & Porter all are in the book and was a big help. The book is at Tarleton State University in Stephenville in the research section. There are well over 2000 surnames in these 2 volumes and also includes some cemetary listings..It is very worth while, I have only Vol.2, but if some one wants me to look up any info on a surname have them Email their request to

Subject: Texas Rangers -- a little more

The Texas Rangers were organized about 1823, primarily (I think) to defend Stephen F. Austin's colonists from indian attacks. In 1836 they became the Republic of Texas' main law enforcement unit and continued after 1845 for the State of Texas. They functioned mostly as a "home guard" unit during the War Between the States, again as indian fighters I believe.

BUT there was also a cavalry unit (regiment?) known as Terry's Texas Rangers. I do not know whether this was a CSA unit or a State of Texas unit but I think they fought with the Army of Northern Tennessee. There were also at least two groups from Texas known as "Partisan Rangers."

To confuse matters a bit more, individual companies were identified by a letter, Co. A, Co. B, etc. but they also had names. "Lone Star" appears often as in "Lone Star Rifles" as do names of counties and towns. I would be surprised if no one of these companies was called the "Texas Rangers."

CSA service records are keep in the National Archives for an ineresting reason. At the end of the war, they were collected to help screen out Confederates who might apply for a pension. However, few state records are there.

A good place to check is the Civil War Center at LSU. Their web site is http://www.cwc.lsu.edu/index.htm.

Subject: Confederate Muster Roll - Company A, 1st GA. Vol. Inf.

The Georgia Department of Archives in Atlanta have a copy of the muster roll of Company "A", 1st Georgia Vol. Infantry, dated 1862, including accounts of two of the many engagements participated in by this unit. The record was written in 1909 not long before the death of former Confederate Lt. Lavender Robinson Ray.

The records were part of a large amount of material donated by mr. Ray. He served in the same regiment with my great uncle, Lt. George Michael Robertson. They were related.

Lavender R. Ray was not only a lawyer and Judge but was actively involved in the reconstruction of Atlanta and Newnan, GA. He is related to the A.D. ADAIR line who lived in Atlanta and are buried in Oakwood Cemetery.

Another part of this treasure trove are the news clippings and correspondence relating to Wheeler Cavalry reunions, 1899-1900, including one letter to Theodore Roosevelt concerning the memorial. It also includes the words and music to "Wheeler's Cavalry".

Subject: VAUGHN, BLUE families

I would like to pass along a request from a friend who is a non-subscriber. I'm sorry if it's a little long, but I didn't want to shorten it too much, thereby leaving out something that might trigger a thought from someone.

I am seeking information on the family of my grandfather, Richard VAUGHN, who evidently died in the late 1890's. I have no information on his birthdate/ location, marriage date, or death date/location. I have very little to go on in tracing Richard Vaughn except what was listed on the 1900, 1910 and 1920 Michigan census records for the family of Malcolm BLUE.

My father's birth records are equally poor. My father, John R. VAUGHN, was born on September 18, 1894 (1895?) and consistently listed Tacoma, Washington in documents as his birthplace, however, I have not been able to obtain any records from the public agencies in that area. My father left Washington sometime before 1900 and moved in with his grandparents in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The 1900 census indicates that he was living with the Blue family in Hancock, MI.

Sometime in the 1900's the Blue family moved to Detroit. The 1910 and 1920 census records show John Vaughn and his mother Anna Vaughn living with Malcolm Blue.

In summary, I would like to find:

-Birth records for John VAUGHN or his father, Richard VAUGHN
-Marriage record of Richard VAUGHN and ANNA BLUE
-Death record of Richard VAUGHN
-Census records for Richard VAUGHN

Please respond via email to either

I don't know the McCleskey's at all, but I will look for those names you mentioned. It is mainly about early settlers in these areas and what he and his friends could put together.

Subject: Daves
From: william cal daves

I would like to make a correction in your County History. The name Davies you have listed as settling north of Gordon on Palo Pinto Creek should be spelled DAVES and the date they settled should be 1856. I know they are listed in the 1860 Census as Davis but that was incorrect. My Great-Great Grandmother was Rebecca Ann Vermillion Daves, she settled in Palo Pinto County in 1856 with her family, William Harrison Daves (My Great Grandfather), James Loving Daves, and other children. William Harrison moved to Bosque County in 1869, near Iredell. James Loving Daves stayed and donated land for the cemetery at Santo, helped estabilish the First Baptist Church at Santo. He is buried in the Santo Cementery.

I almost hate to do this, but one more correction, I believe the name Reasomers should be REASNOR, I am related to those folks as well.

My grandfather, William A. SPENCER, alias Champ MEANS, in his application for a pension from the TEXAS RANGERS stated that he was a member of the PALO PINTO COUNTY RANGERS, 1873-1874. Is there any information out there specifically about PALO PINTO COUNTY RANGERS? W. C. McADAMS was the commanding officer. SPENCER/MEANS states that he served with Wash HULLUM, Joe SCHOOLCRAFT, William J. HALE, Jim OWENS, Matthew LAMBERTH, and Long Billy NICHOLS. He knew John POLLARD, Sam and Bill WARD, John (Bud) MATTHEWS, and Bill DOGGETT. He said that he worked on the Narborough (not sure about the spelling) Ranch, 15 or 20 miles from CISCO, Texas. He worked on the HITTSON Ranch. Where was that? He was also in THROCKMORTON County at the Old Stone Ranch where he worked for Martin HOOVER. He also lived in Strawn, EASTLAND County. All of this took place around 1869-1876 before he went to DENTON County and married. From there he moved to Grandbury, HOOD County until 1884 when he returned to PALO PINTO County. He lived there until 1889.

He was known as CHAMP MEANS from 1869 to 1876, but when he returned to PALO PINTO County he went by his real name, William A. SPENCER or Bill Spencer.

Any information you can give me will be appreciated. if any of these people are your ancestors, I would be interested in exchanging information.
