THE BOOKOUT FAMILY

 

The Bookout Family Mourns the Death of Lawrence E. Bookout, 84, Pittsburg, KS
Saturday, Dec. 23, 2000. He is survived by Mary Jones Bookout, wife of 61 years.



This is a discussion area for anyone who has an interest in genealogy related to the BOOKOUT family, including BOECKHOUT, BOUCHOUT, BUCKHOUT, BOOKHOUT or any other related spelling.

It has been a very long time since, in 1942, Hubert Bookout of Sherman, Texas began to correspond with other Bookouts in hopes of compiling a family history on behalf of all Bookout families. Since his time there have been half a dozen or so other Bookouts and Bookout descendants who have continued his efforts in a scattered way and, for the most part, independently of each other.

Several years ago, with the advent of online computer services, unprecedented cooperation among family historians interested in Bookouts began, and a database giving the basic branches of the Bookout family tree, stemming from Joseph Bookout of Randolph County, North Carolina, has been worked out in considerable detail.

Those of us who subscribe and have contributed to this effort would like to share what we have found with your family. None of us are professional genealogists and all do what we do as amateurs as a matter of sheer interest and family pride.

What we have assembled is not just another electronic compendium of Bookout telephone numbers and addresses from nationwide directories, but a bona fide genealogy of the Bookout family pieced together from censuses, family Bibles, cemetery records, obituaries and contributed documentation. Family lore is included but is decidedly secondary.

It's ironic that the technology that broke up the close-knit family groups we knew as kids, which were often unaware of their extended families, has now provided us the means to bring relatives who never heard of each other together again.

We extend to you our sincere welcome and earnest wish that you will add your store of Bookout information to what we already have.

Across the miles and years, we Bookouts and Bookout descendants are glad to be in touch with you again.
Henry Wade Bookout III
