Would like to make a correction to my earlier post about
Rhode NELSON. She may NOT have married a SWEAT or SWEATMAN
but may have been a ZIMMER (not sure of this either). One thing
that I do know for sure is that Rhode/Rhoda lived in Rule, TX at
one time. Thanks! and HELP! HELP! HELP! :-) Cathy Stanfield can also be reached at: http://members.aol.com/dgoat40/jcstan.html

I am searching for any information on the families of John Franklin PINKERTON and Collin Akin PINKERTON. They were brothers. Their parents were David Alexander PINKERTON and Rebecca AKIN. It is believed that the town of PINKERTON is named for them. They were living near the Pinkerton/Rule area around 1900-1920. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Michelle Akin, Rt. 3 Box 390-A, Texarkana, TX 75503

Wed, 26 Nov 1997 18:32:13 I have some more information on John F. Pinkerton. He was born in Gatesville, Coryell County, Texas. His mother, Rebecca Akin Pinkerton, died in 1866 in Coryell County, and his father, David Alexander Pinkerton, died in December 1869 in Coryell County. John had two daughters I am also searching for. His brother, Collin Akin Pinkerton, was supposedly married twice. I have been unable to verify this as he disappears between 1870 and 1910. If needed, I can send a copy of my Pinkerton family tree. Thank you, Michelle Akin

William Pleasant EDWARDS, was my gr-gr-gr-grandfather. According to his death certificate, he was born November 14,1853 in Perry Co., Tennessee. He was the son of David EDWARDS and Amanda GOODWIN EDWARDS. He died in Haskell Co., Texas on June 23, 1936. I know from census records he lived in Wayne Co., Tennessee until 1910 and then he and his wife, Nancy Caroline LEWIS EDWARDS dissappear until he dies in Haskell, County. I cannot find where his wife dies or is buried. Need to know if his wife is buried in the same cemetery or near that location. Also need to rule out the possibility she could have died in Tennessee and then he moved to Texas. Any individual with info. or willing to do a cemetery look up please reply.

My name is Sonja Bedford, I am looking for information on my grandmother who was born in Haskell in 1917.
Her name was EDNA IVY, and she had a lot of siblings, I think one was VERNON IVY. My mother
has not had contact with this part of her family for many years and would appreciate any
 information she could use to contact them, as we now know that Vernon has passed away and
cannot be contacted, we need to find any living siblings of Edna that we can contact. Thank you very much.
