I have heard that records kept by the Masonic Lodge are a good source
research. Most of my ancestor's that lived in the Clifton, Meridian, and Valley Mills area
were Masons. They were some of the first families to live in Bosque County. The Everett's,
Goodall's, Wood's, and Helton's. Does anyone know how far back the Mason's records
for Bosque County go and if they are accessable for family history research?
My Gr-Gr-Grandfather was Alfred W. Fine. He had 160 acres just north
of Clifton. The survey
bears his name and waspatented in 1867 (he had been living there since 1859)with T. Everett
witnessing to his long term residence. I believe the property was transferred, sold or
some-such shortly after the patent date. Alfred moved to live with family in Comanche County
about that year. I am interested to know to whom the ownership was transferred.
If someone could search the property records, I would appreciate it greatly.

The 1880 census for Bosque Co. lists a family headed by J. B. and
which includes Mary Jane STOCKING, age 10, and Marvin R. STOCKING, age 9. I am
interested in knowing more about this family. These two children, Mary Jane and Marvin,
are believed to be siblings, but not children of J. B. and Henrietta. In 1870 Mary Jane, at
3 mo. of age, was in Harris Co., TX in the household of John and Isaac (f) STOCKING. Family
legend says John's wife and the mother of the children was Loretta GARY, and that she died
shortly after Marvin'sbirth. Was she connected to the GARY families in Bosque Co.?
Supposedly the children were left with relatives to be raised, possibly J. B. and Henrietta
STOCKING in Bosque Co. One source says Henrietta was a PENSON before her marriage.
Two other girls were listed in the family in 1880.

Looking for any info about the Glenn families of Bosque County
Query: I have a picture of an infant that was found in my great
grandfather Robert Henry Blackwell's papers. The picture has some
writing on the back " only grandaughter Ella Elizabeth Goldsmith". I
have found this family, John W. (Wesley), Dora and Ella on the Bosque
Co. Census records and also in cemetery records. I do not know of any
relation to the Blackwell family, but perhaps there is a connection
through the Clemens line. If anyone knows anything about the Goldsmith
family of Bosque County or any descendants I would love to hear from
you. I don't believe that Ella Elizabeth ever married, but she did have
brother and some sisters. Would be happy to get the picture to the
family and would also love to know what the connection may have been to
