HOWARD posted by Bobby Howard on Thursday, December 7, 2000

William J HOWARD was living in Parker during the 1880 census with wife LOUISA and children, IRENE, CHARLIE, ARTHUR, WILSON,TEXANA. They had come from Alabama, and some of LOUISA'S family came with them, but I can't find any information on Williams parents or siblings. If anyone has access to the 1880 census and could look him up and see if maybe his parents or siblings were with him, I would sincerely appreciate it.

CRETSINGER posted by Royce Allen Cretsinger on Friday, December 8, 2000

I am trying to trace my family tree and found a referance to a SAMUEL NATHANIEL DANIEL CRETSINGER and a SAMUEL JACKSON (JACK) CRETSINGER, both of whom are buried in IRBY CEMETERY in PARKER, TEXAS. Not including the living, the following is a list of those people that I have found out I am related to: WILBURT (NEWT) CRETSINGEER-grandfather, siblings are CORBETT and ANNA. Born in Freestone County. GEORGE (NEWT) CRETSINGER-great-grandfather, siblings are TOM HARRISON, ANNIE, and BYRD. Possibly born in Montgomery ,Alabama. WILEY HARRISON CRETSINGER-great-great-grandfather. Lived in or around Montgomery, Alabama, born in Alabama. Census records show that his father was born in Kentucky but does not give any names. I have heard that my part of the CRETSINGER family first came to the US from germany when three brothers worked their way by boat to Louisianna and eventually went their seperate ways. If anyone has any information that would link the CRETSINGERS in Parker County to those listed above and any information or sources of information on those CRETSINGERS, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much for your effort. Royce Allen Cretsinger
