MARSHALL, SEBASTIAN posted by Dean Lawry on Tuesday, December 5, 2000

I am interested in any Maverick Couty information regarding my ggrandfather George Nubern (G N) Marshall. He died of pneumonia on March 23, 1885 at the age of 40. His wife, Maria (Sebastian) served as postmistress from 1889 to 1908. George Marshall was supposedly buried in a cemetary in Maverick. Any additional information or confirmation of burial details would be appreciated. Sponsor Note:G.N. Marshall buried Maverick Cemetery. Runnels County Cemetery Inscriptions lists:

Marshall, G.N. 1 Jun 1845 - 23 Mar 1885 (CSA, service unknown)

Look at the Runnels County TXGenWeb site and there are two pages that list your G.N. Marshall. Not much more information there except that it shows he was in a Texas regiment in the civil war. Here's two pages to view:

ROBERTS, STEEN posted by Shelli O'Steen on Monday, January 8, 2001

Thomas James (maybe James Thomas) O'Steen was born 1861 or 1862 in Hazelhurst, Mississippi. He married Juretta Roberts, born 1966(9?) in Sedalia, Missouri. They moved to Runnels County before 1886. Juretta's mother's first name was Vashtie and she was born in 1829 in Arkansas. I am looking for both descendants and information about these ancestors. Shelli shelmar1@home.com.

BALDWIN, HAMBRIGHT, HIGHTOWER posted by Betty Hightower Cardenas on Tuesday, January 23, 2001

I have a letter written to my grandfather, Claude HIGHTOWER, in 1947 from 2 German Prisoners-of-war captured by him after their escape from Camp Barkley in 1945. One of the men had been sent after the war to a prisoner camp in England, and had been released and allowed to return home to Germany in August or September, 1947. The letter was addressed to "Sheriff HIGHTOWER, Winters, Texas, U.S. A.", dated September 27, 1947 and mailed from Germany the next day. From the letter, it would appear that this was quite an event in Winters, as the writer referred to being escorted back to the prison camp by "the entire populace of Winters". I would like to hear from anyone who remembers the re-capture of German POW's just outside of Winters - or who remembers hearing their parents talk about it.
