Query: Seeking any information on James Edwin (J.E.) Wallace who was
said to have been the Superintendant of Schools in Meridian in 1895. Any
little tidbit that someone might come up with would be greatly
appreciated. I can find no proof he lived in Bosque Co. In 1900 he was
in Montague Co. and was an editor. Any help to show that he did live and
work in Meridian would be greatly appreciated! I did find a reference in
Belton that says:
Milam Co., TX. - Newspaper: Cameron Herald 1895 Newspaper, Aug 1895
Cameron, Texas Vol. 14, No. 5 (Whole No. 680) --- Thursday, August 1,

The Record, published at Temple has been transferred to Belton by Prof.
J. E. Wallace and J. H. Linebaugh.
H. B. Savage and D. F. Savage sold the Belton Daily and Weekly News to
J. E. Wallace, Henry Lyon and H. S. Laird who will continue publication
under the name, Belton News Co.

So I don't know if he was in Meridian or Belton. "The Street Genealogy"
by Mary Street 1895, places him living in Meridian.

Please e mail me at if you come up with ANYTHING.

Am at a brickwall on greatgrandparents, Joseph Benjamin Whitehead and Ola Adams. Have been
searching in Dodge County for about a year and discovered some notes I jotted down 30 years
ago that states they were from Winder, Ga.  I live near Canada and am doing all my research on
the internet. Joseph and Ola were married about 1902-3, I have a copy of their wedding photo, and
they look to be in their early 20's, so I am guessing their births in the late 1870-early "80's.
I believe Joseph was a Junior, and it is either him or his father that the Joseph B.Whitehead
Boy's Club in the Lakewood section of Atlanta is named in honor of. There seems to be family
lore that one of them has a formal portrait in Crawford Long Hospital. Has anyone acess to
the early Walton County marriage records, or census reports for 1880 that might list them in
their family homes? I would be most grateful for any assistance. One last thing, in the mid
1970's I was contacted by a woman who was doing! a genealogical report for her family and
mine was an extention, or "branch" leading off a common ancestor. She wanted to publish the
report and was inquiring the interest in the family to purchase copies, as she had to commit to a
set number to have it printed and bound. I never heard anymore from her, but would me
most interested if the following information would ring a bell in anyone's memory. She was
researching my Whitehead/Adams line, and I got the impression she was of the Adams side. I
do remember her saying we had an ancestor, Hartwell Jackson, that the family descended from.
She was a lovely lady, as most genealogists are, and quite willing to share her findings.
If anyone has family descending from Hartwell Jackson, I am sure the Adams family will be
in it also, as she said the family was quite old in the reigon. Again many thanks, Jane K.

Whitlock, Luck, James, Hollingsworth, Chafin in Bosque County and Kimbell Bend. My GG
Grandparents were Lorenzo Whitlock and May Luck. I am having trouble locating anything about
the Luck family. I think Lorenzo was born in Missouri, but then I pick him up marrying May
Luck in Hill County. My GGG Grandparents were Johnny James and Ariadne Bateman. They
married in Bosque county. I can't find where the James came from before that. I know
they came to Texas in the late 1850's because of the obituary I have for Johnny James. Also,
they had a son Fred James. He was married to Emma Hollingsworth and they both died young
and left 5 children. I can't find record of either of them. The Chafin's are tough too. Rose Warnick
married Tom Chafin. Her parents her buried in Rio Vista.  Tom and Rose lived in Kimbell Bend,
Walnut Springs, Bryson, Mexia, Geraldine, etc. Found their graves in Cottonwood Cemetary in
Jack County, but nothing else on them. They are also my GG Grandparents.Any assista!
nce would be great.Thanks.

I posted yesterday about Whitlock, Luck, James, Bateman, Chafin and Hollingsworth in Bosque Co.
I forgot dates. Lorenzo Whitlock and May Luck were married in the late 1880's in Hill Co. They
had a farm in Bosque County. My GGrandfather always talked about Blum as his home. He was
Jack C. Whitlock and he was born October 22, 1896. My GGrandmother was a James and her
grandparents were Johnny James and Ariadne Bateman. They married in the late 1860's and their
son Fred James was her Father and her Mother was Emma Hollingsworth. Both died in the late 1900's
or early 1910's. My GGrandmother's name was Stella May James and her birthdate was 9/9/1900/1901.
She always talked about Kimbell Bend and Bosque County. My GGrandfather was Alvin Thomas
(Tom) Chafin. He and Rosa Jane (Rosa on the internet)Warnick were married in the early 1910's.
The always lived around Walnut Springs, Rio Vista, Mexia, Gerladine, Bryson, Cleburne and
Witchita Falls. My Grandfather, their oldest son was born 9/! 1/1915 and his name was Louie
(Lou, Luey, L.E.) Estell (Estel, Estelle) Chafin.Tom,Rose and their little Girl Bonnie Sue are buried
in Cottonwood Cemetary in Jack County. I am looking for information about these people and
their kin before them. The Chafins, I don't know where they were born, married or where they came
from. I know about Rose's parents Theodore P. and Mina Lou Warnick. They are buried in Rio Vista.
I can't find anything about the Lucks or the James prior to their marriages. I know that John James
fought (CSA) in the Civil War and that he was born in Missouri and came to Texas in the late 1850's.
Anyway, I appreciate any help. Thanks.
