I am researching the African American family of London CITY.
I have found them in Blanco, Kendall, Williamson, Bastrop and Travis
Counties by way of Louisiana. Primary are:

London b. 1820 GA
Hiram  b. 1838 LA
Murray b. 1840 LA
Rob(b)in b. 1840 LA
(Murray & Rob(b)in were probably twins
and along with Hiram they were all

probably sons of London.)

Albert, Sr. b.1880, TX was the son of Hiram and may have been
the most
prominent of them all. Any information would be
greatly appreciated. Posting
to the web page is ok with me too.

My primary research is on Criders and affiliated families.

My Watson’s came to what was then Gilllespie county in the early 1850’s. 
This part of the county later became Blanco County
They came from Missouri as did the Crider’s.
 Daniel Crider married Sarah Watson and that’s
how the two families came to be together. 

Some Criders are buried in the Sandy Cemetary
and most of the Watsons that I know of are buried in Driftwood Cemetary
in Hays County.

I am researching James Polk Johnson (born Aug 24, 1845 in Greene Co, 
and died Oct 20, 1885 Johnson City., Texas) and
Julia Ann Moore (born  Oct
18, 1848 in DeWitt Co., Texas
and died Jan 29, 1896 in Johnson City,  Texas).  I

think I have been in touch with all of my relatives in the  Johnson line,
continue to look for descendants of the Moore line.  
Julia's father was
George E. Moore and her mother was Elizabeth
but  her maiden name has been
reported as Hughes and Dorsey. 
I have  not been able to locate her and clarify that

detail.  Julia had several  brothers who lived in Blanco Co. 
They were Tom
Moore who married Fannie  Bass. 
Tom and Fannie lived in Blanco until their
Tom and  Fannie had six children.   Julia's baby brother was Charles

Moore who  lived in Blanco Co until about 1900
when he moved to Prescott, Arizona.

 He  and his wife, Ann Gray owned Moore Mercantile in Prescott
until about
1910 when  they moved back to Texas. 
They both died in El Paso and are buried
