2012 Titus County, Texas Queries


Date: Sept 7, 2012

Email: Joe L. McDonald

Query: I see in the 1860 Titus County census, my great, great grandfather,A.W.(Alexander White)McDonnald, is listed with his family, pg 229. It all lines up with the family history stories. But I was told he lived in Titus, TX. Is that a town that no longer exists? If so whereabouts is it in the county? And what cemetaries are near there. J.E.(James Evans) is the only child that survived from the first marriage (1850 census). I was always told that the girls died of a plague and H.W.(Houston White)died in the Civil War. I do not know where. My sister, Cydney Medford, put me onto your website.
Houston was named after Sam Houston who was good friends with A.W. and was the one who invited A.W. to come to Texas.
James Evans moved onto central then West Texas, finally settling in Comanche, TX. Retired and moved to Abilene. Died of a strangulated hernia when he was 69.
He had 5 or 6 boys (4 buried in Comanche-one my grandfather- they were all grown men with families) and 2 girls. One of the girls' husband became mayor of Abilene. I no longer have the McDonald genealogy book. My brother, Jack, does so I am a little hazy on names and dates. My grandfather J.C.(James Collie)lived most of his life in Miles, TX and San Angelo. He had 5 boys(1 died at age 2)and 2 girls. i had great uncles telling me the tales of the McDonald clan. I would love any info you can impart to me.

Query: I am trying to find information on my great grandmother, Mollie D Parker. She was born in Nov 1875 and died in either 1908 or 1909. She was both born and died in Texas.
She wss married to John Henry Frizzell around 1891 and had several children. I thought she died still married to my gr grandfather John Frizzell but the Frizzells don't want to talk about her. He married again in 1908 to Leatha Fields when my grandmother was around 10. I can't find a death certificate or marriage license for them or any info about her other who her parents were. If you know anything about her, please contact me asap as I'm working on my ancestry album.

Query: I am trying to locate information regarding a Rachael Tedder who is listed on the 1870 U.S. Census as the spouse of John Tedder living in Titus, TX. Racheal has a birthdate of about 1848 somewhere in TX. Her parents are not listed. I am trying to find out if Racheal Tedder is the same one as a Rachel Ealy or Ely listed on the 1850 Census at age 3 residing in Titus, TX. Her parents are listed as Henry and Sarah. There is also a Rachel L. Ealey or Ely, in the 1860 Census as age 12 living in Titus, TX with a father of Henry but no mother. Sarah died at a young age. Any help you can give would be appreciated.
