Hurst
I was wondering if anyone there could give me some information on the HURST Ranch. People in Hamilton County thought you might have information about it in Mills County. I would like to know if you know when it was started, who owned it, the man's name who started it, and any other information you might have. It was obviously dissolved, and we cannot find out any information regarding it. My husband's father believed that his great-grandfather started the ranch, but we can find no informaiton. We can only go back as far as a Samuel Thomas HURST, born in 1871 and lived in either Hamilton or Mills County in 1900 after he was married and died in 1925 in Star Texas. Also, we are having a dispute, is Star Texas in Mills County or in Lampassas County. Any information you could give me about the HURST Ranch would be greatly appreciated. I really enjoy the Gen Web and have gotten quite a bit of information so far. Am also looking for a Charles H. HURST who is buried in the HURST Ranch Cemetary, and were told he lived in Mills County, but so far, no luck in finding him either. Thank you very much. BabsieH@aol.com

GOINS, HOWARD, JONES
Query: . We are looking for any available information on Emily HOWARD and her first husband, John Nathan GOINS - (last name may be spelled GOIN, GOEN, GOENS, GOING, GOINGS, GOWEN, GOWENS). She is believed to have lived the last several years of her life in Cleburne, Johnson County, and we believe she is buried there, death date & cemetery info unknown.
We have the following about Emily HOWARD: According to LDS records, she was born Emily R.JONES in 1853 in Athens, Henderson County and her father was Frederick JONES, mother was Harriet (?). She had a son by John Nathan GOINS. We have been unable as yet to find record of her marriage to John Nathan GOINS, but according to LDS records, she was divorced from him. Under her maiden name, E.R. JONES, she married J.B. HOWARD December 23, 1877 in Comanche County. She appears in the Mills County 1910 Census at age 57, with her husband Joab HOWARD, age 63. It is unknown when she moved to Cleburne, or how old she was when she died.
We have the following about John Nathan GOINS: According to LDS records, he was born in 1849 in Athens, Henderson County, but according to Brown County 1920 census record showing his son John GOINS as head of household, under "birthplace of father" he was born in France. Family oral tradition says he was "French and Indian". His name was given as "Nath Goins" on his son's death certificate.
This son he had by Emily R. Jones was my wife's grandfather, John Christopher Columbus GOINS, b. 17 July 1875 in Athens. In the index to the 1880 Comanche County census, a Joab HOWARD is listed as head of household, and in the same household is listed "GOEN(?), John C.", age 5 which corresponds with the birthdate given and is consistent with his mother's marriage to Mr. Howard three years previous.
We will be glad to share any information we have with anyone searching same surnames, locations, etc.
Jon and Sherri RIVARD.

 RITTENBERRY
Query:
        The obituary for my great-grandfather Richard Henry RITTENBERRY (from Abilene Reporter News, July 1, 1925) indicated that he moved to Abilene 17 years before his death from Mills County.  That would be about 1908.
       Previously, I had believed that he and his wife, Margaret Elizabeth, had lived near Ladonia prior to moving west to Abilene.
        He was born in Tennesse in late 1841 and moved to Texas in about 1890. He was a Confederate veteran and a member of the Baptist church.  Would the historical society have any records indicating he was a resident in the county?
