||Bradshaw, Hoskins, Read, Wolfe
||Looking for descendants of two brothers born in TEXAS who came to the Washoe/Humboldt area of NV. Marshall Hoskins was here
by 1900, and Charles joined him by 1910. Charles is listed on census records in Humboldt Co. from 1910 to 1930, but Marshall is found in Washoe
Co., where his first wife, Frankie G. READ, daughter of Samuel Read, died in 1945. (Marshall and Frankie also divorced in Reno in 1919, and Reno
newspapers indicate he probably remarried in 1925 to a Miss Minnie Bradshaw, also of the area, although the marriage took place in Modesto, CA.)
Marshall & Frankie had three children that lived to adulthood:
- Nora m. Cox
- Charles P m. Sicily?
- Alma m. Smith;
- Frankie m. Hawkins
- Erma m. Sullivan
- George S. m. Mabel R.
whose son was named Ted Hoskins m. Betty Hopkins
- May m. Charles A. Livingstone
I am NOT a descendant, but I am a serious researcher of this family because the FATHER of Marshall & Charles P. was a Llano Co. Sheriff in
the later 1870's during a lawless time period when a RANGE WAR was raging in Central Texas. Their father, William P. Hoskin, was an important figure
in this conflict, and I feel his descendants may be totally unaware of the interesting story entwined in the life of both their father, William P. Hoskins,
and their mother, Harriet WOLFE.
Unfortunately, Harriet died after Marshall was born, and by 1880, Wm. P. was so consumed with consumption, he and the two boys had to live
with Harriet's half brother and family because William was near death, which occurred just a few months after the census was taken. Both parents are
buried in the Board Branch Cem., Lone Grove, Llano Co. TX
Little is known about the parentage of William P. Hoskins, but there is more detail available on Harriet's family. Researchers on the HOODOO
RANGE WAR, as it came to be called, are anxious to find more on the family of Wm. P. Hoskins. Hopefully, additional information will come forward with
||Bryant, Tennison, Trott
||Traveiling from MN in or about
1863, a Mr. Bryant and his wife, Abigale, were
traveling with a John Tennison and a Miss Trott.
(Both ladies were sisters and Mrs. Bryant was
lame). They sold their property in Nevada in 1868
or 1869 and moved to Santa Maria, Santa Barbara,
Have been researching the family of Joseph Trott
and the Tennison family. Records and facts I have
concern the families to present day and go back
to 1790. The few years this branch of the family
tree were in Nevada is unclear. Mr. Bryant went
in to the hardware business in California and
the business was willed to his son in 1939. Any
and all information regarding the Francis Marion
Bryant, Abigale Trott Bryant, Valina/Velina/Velena
Trott or/ John Tennison would greatly be appreciated.
||Looking for information on Tex
Smith who was married to Florence Julia Buckskin.
Tex Smith had a Wild West show of some sort and
was the father of the infamous murderer, Perry
Smith (Clutter Family in 1959 Kansas "In Cold
Blood by Truman Capote"). Tex died in Reno in
1986. Am trying to trace his wife's family and
possibly locate the missing daughter, Barbara.
||I'm trying to find information
on my parents, grandparents, brother, and aunts & uncles.
I know many of them are at Mountain View, but
I don't have dates. Thank you for any help you
can give me.
||Looking to find information on
Albert L. Johnson, son of Josephine Canfield Johnson
Didlake. Last seen in any listing was when he
signed his mothers death cert. on June 12, 1965
in Lovelock, Pershing Co., NV. Relatives lived

||Looking for the obit for Don J.
Clinard died in Washoe County, NV October 3, 2002.
Just trying to find out where they laid him to
rest and if any family members were left.
||I'm looking for information on
Sue P. Coleman, died Reno 9 Aug, 1997.
||I was just doing research on my
ancestor, Lieutenant Robert L. Duncan, when I
came across a book called: The Works of Hubert
Howe Bancroft, vol. 25; History of Nevada I
read through some of it and found it so very interesting,
but much more when I came across my GG-Grandfather's
name! He was in the 2nd California Calvary, Company
F, but was attached to Company I during the period
of May 30, 1865 to May 1866. It was written, and
I quote; "..Troubles continuing in northern
Nevada, Captain Conrad of Company B, of that organization,
and a detachment of Company I, under Lieutenant
Duncan, with eight citizens, had a battle on the
morning of the 12th of January, 1866, with the
Indiana on Fish Creek, sixty-five miles west of
Paradise Valley. The conflict was a determined
one on both sides, the savages being led by Captain
John, a chief of the Warner Lake Shoshones, who
had killed Colonel McDermit. After a three hour's
fight the troops were victorious, slaying thirty-five
warriors, capturing ten women with their children,
and destroying their supplies..."
I just received his Civil War file from NARA and am able
to follow where he went from month to month. He served from
August 1861 until July 866. He died on September 19, 1878,
in Moscow Territory, Idaho. From family notes I can verify
that "his hat and coat were found in Indian Territory." I
guess he continued to serve our country, but as a civilian,
and lost his battle at the young age of 42. He is buried in
MOSCOW CEMETERY, Moscow, Idaho.
I know there were battles being fought between
the Indians and settlers, perhaps that is how
the retired Lieutenant Robert Duncan died.
Robert Duncan was born in 1836, in Uniontown,
Fayette County, Pennsylvania. His family removed
to Dubuque County, Iowa about 1851. Robert went
west by 1861 and enlisted in the California
Calvary. Eventually his parents, Samuel and
Margaret (Long) Duncan, and brother, John K.
Duncan, came to California and settled in Solano
I wonder if anyone knows of this family?

||My G. Uncle Curtis W. (Jack) Goldman,

||My mother's brother, JOHN EDWARD
GOODMAN died in a Navy hospital in Reno, Nevada
on or near January 8, 1958. He was in the Navy
stationed at Portsmouth, NH. He was born in 1923
in Portsmouth, Scioto Co OH.
The obit says he died of a heart attack. He was
37 years old. There has always been a rumor in
the family that he was beaten to death. His obit
did not list his wife or children, only his parents,
brother and 3 sisters. My Mom knows he had a family
in California. She does not remember his wife's
name. Is it possible to get a copy of his death
certificate? Wouldn't that have a wife listed?
I greatly appreciate any direction and help. I
would love to find his family for my Mom...she
is 75..she remembers he had 3 daughters, one named
Sheila, not much more. Thank you very much.
