INDIGENT FAMILIES OF FANNIN COUNTY TEXAS

"Records of payments to individuals would be in the county court records, if they still exist.  The records on file in the State Archives consist of the county lists prepared by the Chief Justices.  The information varies somewhat from county to county.  The following listing shows the different types of information that appear in the lists:

Variant 1:
Name of the soldier
In service?
Disabled in service?
Killed in service?
Number of dependents

Variant 2:
Name of the soldier
Unit
Number of dependents

Variant 3:
"Head of household" (usually the wife, although mothers, sisters, or aunts 
sometimes appear)
Number of dependents.

Many of these county lists are divided by Precinct.  The records themselves are filed alphabetically by county.

The online index to the Mearse transcripts gives only the name and county.  The Linda Mearse publication reproduces ALL of the information available in the original record.  There is no additional file or record in our holdings for any of the families listed."


39th Georgia Infantry. "Following the War Between the States several wagon trains consisting of former members of the 39th Georgia Infantry left the Northwest Georgia area and went to Texas.  It appears that most of them
settled in Fannin and Tarrant Counties"

SCATTERLINGS: BLAIR, WILLIAMS AND TURNER TO TEXAS-
1853-1873  By Rusty Williams
Read the chapter on this website , about the struggles of one woman at
home in Fannin County during the War Betweent the States.

Ruth Walsh Suggests this book:
     "Reminiscences of the Boys in Gray 1861-1865" Complied by Miss Mamie Yeary, McGregor,Texas, published by Morningside in 1986. 
    (This is a reprint of a 1912 edition printed in Dallas).  The Dallas Public Libary and the Library of Congress has a copy of the 1912 edition.  Morningside Press has a website and the reprint can be ordered from it.  Its pricy so I suggest people find someone who has access to a copy
    to see if their ancestor is listed.  If so, it gives a nice little bio of 
    wartime endeavors."
