My paternal grandfather, Henry Herbert Brown, was born 07/19/1903 in Montague. I have no knowlege of James Henry Brown's parents - apparently his father died before he was 11 because he told family that after his father died his mother remarried and he left home at the age of 11 and met up with a covered wagon train headed to Texas. He joined the wagon train and ended up in Montague County. He told the story that at the age of 16 he went back to check on his mother and she had already died. James Henry Brown told family he was born around Springfield, MO. One census record indicates that he was born in Georgia? My father seems to remember that James Henry Brown worked at what is now the Nocona Boot Factory.

Our ancestor's are Thomas Greenstreet and Lavina Samuels and they married in Adair co., Mo in 1852 and moved their 10 children to Montague Co., Texas in April of 1876. According to the 1880 census they settled around St. Joseph and some were still there by 1900. WE are "told" that Thomas died 1886 at St. Jo's and wife Lavina died 1883. 3 girls we've found marriage records for in Texas=Innis (or Enis) marrried James Moses Phillips 1877 in Montague, Lucy M. married WM hale in 1887 in Wise Co., and Alba married William S. Chancey in 1886 in Texas. But for all the written correspondence and searching of census and other records we can't find any record of what happened to Abner who was last listed as a male of 16 in 1880 census (a twin to Alba), John L. who was 13 years old in 1880, Clara who is 10 years old in 1880, 2 twins==a boy and a girl both with the initials E.M. in the 1880 census and were 8 years only, and a W. Greenstreet, male who was 4 years old. We've tried to track the older siblings but none have showed up with them so far? Was there some kind of epidemic or something to kill all these children after 1880 and before 1900. Any suggestions would be extremenly appreciated! Thanks, Karen

SURNAMES: ORR PRICE
QRYTEXT: I am seeking information about John ORR, born in Alabama about 1826. John ORR's parents were Sample ORR and Susan PIRATE. At the time of the 1870 U.S. Census, John ORR was head of household, a carpenter, living in Miller Grove, Hopkins County, Texas. His wife was listed as Eliza, age 35. Children in the household were: John, age 14, born in Texas [about 1856] Isaac, age 12, born in Texas [about 1858] Susan, age 10, born in Texas [about 1860] Elijah, age 7, born in Texas [Dec 1862] Andrew, age 2, born in Texas [about 1868] At least two other children are known to have been born after 1870: Lula Arminda, born at Spanish Fort, Montague County, Texas, 5 Feb 1871 (The family, or at least some members of the family, apparently moved to Montague County in late 1870 or early 1871.) Eb, born probably between 1875 and 1880 I have no record of what happened to John ORR and spouse after 1870. I have fairly complete information on the descendants of Elijah and of Lula Arminda. I know nothing about the son, John. However, I did find that there is a John T. ORR buried at Rosehill Cemetery, Ardmore, Oklahoma (1856 — 1922). Based on date of birth, could this be the same person? (I also found a John T. ORR in Montague County, Texas; he was a Justice of the Peace and performed several marriages there at least during October and November 1879.) I know nothing about Isaac, except that he was married and that Lula Arminda and Eb, as children, lived with Isaac and his wife for a period of time. According to family stories from Lula Arminda, Isaac's middle name was Sample. I have no clue as to what happened to Susan and Andrew. I know that Eb was married and that he had at least one daughter, whose name was Gaylon. Gaylon had two marriages; the first husband died and the second husband murdered Gaylon in San Antonio, Texas, in 1948 and then killed himself. (I found a reference to an E. L. ORR who was age 19 in Durwood (present day Marshall County, Oklahoma) in 1902. Might this be Eb?) A note about the elder John ORR's spouse: Her name is listed as "Eliza" on the 1870 census. Other information indicates that her name was Arminda PRICE. Perhaps John had two marriages, or perhaps both Eliza and Arminda were given names of the same person. It is notable that John's older brother, William P. ORR, may have been married to a Talitha PRICE. I know that there are a number of individuals who are researching various children of Sample ORR. Any information that might help me trace the descendants of these children of Sample ORR's son, John, would be most appreciated. (I will be happy to provide information on the descendants of Elijah and Lula Arminda to any interested party.) Charles D. Rollins

His wife, Mary, son John NELSON and daughter-in-law Mary TUCKER-NELSON were all buried in Montague Co. (Illinois Bend) before 1900. I have been told that the senior John NELSON moved to Kansas to live with a daughter (Mary Eggleston)around 1900. There is some evidence, however,to support the theory that he remarried at age 75 to Martha Brilley and was still in the area in 1900. His children which remained in Nocona were Finley, John, Samuel and Pleasant Elmer (P.E.). P.E. was my grandfather and married Nancy Breeze. Both of her parents, Adam and Minerva died in the 1918 flu epidemic. My father was living with them at the time. Any information on either of these families would be greatly appreciated.

Did this minister marry your ancestors?? Benjamin Winchester LAUDERDALE, Church of Christ minister, traveled in Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, 1868-1892, establishing new churches and nursing weak churches. I would like to chronicle his travels by following the baptism, marriages he performed or pulpits he preached from. I would like to receive information on dates, places and people involved. (He is my gg grandfather) I have a photo of him performing a baptism in the river at Wichita Falls, TX ca 1890. Obituary: Dr. B. W. Lauderdale was born(in Sumner County, Tenn., June 30, 1831 and died in Shelby County, October 15, 1895. being reared by a noble Christian mother, he united with the Church of Christ at age sixteen. he graduated from the Louisville Medical College in 1853 and practiced medicine until after the war. He was married in 1860 to Miss Mary C. Taylor, of Tennessee, with whom he lived happily for more than thirty-five years, and who still lives to mourn his loss. He entered the Confederate service as a surgeon in 1862 and served till the close of the war without losing a day for sickness or leave of absence, surrendering under General Forrest, May 28, 1865. He began preaching in 1868, and remained actively in the ministry until death, allowing nothing to keep him from his master's work. he lived to bless humanity. he was always charitable and generous even to a fault. His skill and experience as a physician made his life, as a minister a double blessing for the sick. Though he gave up the practice of medicine on entering the ministry, his life continued to be largely given to the ministrations on the sick.
