PEDEN, SHOEMAKER posted by Sue Peden Miller on Wednesday, September 11, 1996

I am seeking information about the PEDEN family who lived in Wood and Rains counties in Texas. Specifically, John R. (or P.) Peden and his wife, Elizabeth Malinda Peden (1818-1879). She is buried in the Sharon Cemetery but we don't have any further information about Robert. Their children were Mary J., William Miller, Roseanna C., Martha Ann, Robert Arrington (my ggrandfather), Cynthia Carrie, and Nancy L. I believe that Elizabeth Malinda's maiden name may have been SHOEMAKER.

BENTON, CONGER, CROMER, FLOURNOY, HAINES, LLOYD, STEVENSON posted by R. Mark Conger on Wednesday, October 23, 1996

I am researching the CONGER, BENTON, STEVENSON, LLOYD, CROMER, FLOURNOY, HAINES families from Wood County. I am also particularly interested in any Civil War Service records of John Benton, Jr., John Benton, Sr., Thomas E. Conger, Samuel Martin Flournoy, T.F. Benton, William Alexander Conger, and Frank Benton. I am particulary seeking information on a reported Confederate monument that once rested over the grave of John Benton at Rock Hill Cemetary. He is believed to have been a member of the 2nd Texas Partisan Rangers. Any record of the muster from Wood County of that regiment is sought too. I have compiled a great deal of data on the previously mentioned surnames in Wood from the Society files and other research and will share same with anyone in need..
