Updated 2 January 2006 My Step-Father was LUTHER ROSCOE BUSH, b. 1920, Eros, Jackson Parish, La., d. 1995, Shreveport, Caddo Parish, La. He and my Mother, MARZEE JOHNS PARSONS, were married 9 March 1946 in Shreveport. Roscoe was not my biological father, but he was my father in every sense of the word.
When he died in 1995, I fell heir to a box of keepsakes containing many genealogical treasures which I am now sharing with others via this site. For additional info on these folks, please use the surname buttons on the left, and don't forget the search engine!! Enjoy!! And, please, if you can identify any of these folks, or are connected to them, let me know...I'd really like to gather as much information as possible and share it on this site!!!

THE CROOM FAMILY
COMPILED BY DORIS CROOM OUTLAW
Scanning completed 28 Feb 2006
In 1960, when my interest in genealogy first began to spark, there weren't many available resources at the local level. If I had the opportunity to search a record, and copy it, I did. My feeling was that I had no idea who my ancestors were nor where they came from, so I was afraid NOT to copy something--I might need it later!! Well, here it is folks!! A gumbo of material from all over the south. Sources are cited and other genealogists are given credit when possible. This material is being put out here for everyone to share with no monetary gain for anyone. Enjoy!

Concordia Cemetery, El Paso, Texas
Walked and copied by Jan Parsons Armstrong in 1965. There are approximately 450 inscriptions here and there are thousands more out there still to be copied. Concordia has many private sections, Jewish, Chinese, Catholic, Masonic, Odd Fellows, and more. Concordia's best known resident is the legendary gun-fighter, John Wesley Hardin whose inscription is not in this batch because that is a whole other story!!! If you have a missing ancestor who "went west" or "went to the Texies", then take a look here...these people were from everywhere. They came here looking for opportunities, land, blue skies and open spaces. Many also came for their health...El Paso had TB Sanitoriums which were famous. Jan Parsons Armstrong August 12, 2000

TUBBS BITS AND PIECES, SOUTHERN & NORTHERN LINES
Updated 13 January 2006. This site was formerly devoted to the southern lines, but now includes Tubb/Tubbs data from the south and the north. And although I cannot prove it, I have always believed that all these lines are cut from the same piece of cloth--but that's just my opinion. Today there is a newly found letter from Lora Lee Layne and an entire file on Jeremiah Tubbs of the northern Tubbs line. A collection of Tubbs material from the south gleaned from 35-40 year old correspondence with other Tubbs researchers. There are hundreds of these letters and I hope to upload all of them eventually. This section is dedicated to Lora Lee Layne and her intense efforts in Tubbs Research--I wish she had lived long enough to enjoy genealogy on the internet!!!!
