Family of Emmanuel Thomas "E. T." Joines

Emmanuel Thomas "E. T." Joines was born 19 Aug 1848 in Giles County, TN, the son of George W. Joines and Elizabeth Keltner Joines. A Rev. McIntosh married Emmanuel and Henrietta Tabitha Thurman, daughter of James Thurman and Lucy Mealler Thurman, on 28 Feb 1879 in Lynnville, Giles Co., TN. Henrietta was born in Giles County on March 4, 1826. E. T. moved his family to Manor, Travis Co., TX which was a Tennessee Colony established by James Manor. The Manor Cemetery is filled with people who moved there from Giles County. A Travis County deed was executed on 15 May 1894 in which Mr. and Mrs. H. E. Lancaster sold to E. T. Joines an 891 acre parcel of land (John Denton, Juan Maldonado & J. Brown League) along the Caranchua River in Jackson County for 8,600 dollars.




Emmanuel moved his family from Travis County to the Buhler Settlement in Jackson County a few miles from present-day Francitas.


As his children married, several of them remained in the Buhler area to live.

Emmanuel died in Jackson County on 18 Sep 1925 and is buried in Palacios Cemetery, Palacios, Matagorda County, Texas.

Henrietta "R. T." died in Houston 27 Aug 1934 and is buried beside E. T. in the Palacios Cemetery. The inventory of her will reveals that she owned 320 acres of land valued at $6,400, 3 head of cattle valued at $30 and household and kitchen furniture valued at $200. A. C. Joines served as the executor of her will which stated that her possessions be divided between her 11 children, share and share alike.

Joines Brothers Open Up in New Building With General Merchandise Stock.

In their new building Joines Brothers have opened up with a complete stock of dry goods, groceries, boots and shoes and general merchandise. These young men have a general store at LaWard and Francitas is fortunate that they have located here.

Joines Bros. have put up a nice two story building in the block north of the Nebraska Inn and they have stocked it with a first class line of goods, the dry goods department being especially needed here.

That they will do a good business goes without saying as they have a reputation over this portion of Jackson County for honest dealing. Francitas welcomes them.
