RE: [jacksongenealogy] Re: William and Rachel GREEN
My greatgrandmother Etha Malinda Garland came to Wood Co, Texas in the
1880's with two of her daughters and their families. G. Harrison Chapman and
wife Charlotte Morgan Garland, they had two sons and a daughter (my
grandmother, Mollie); J. Taylor Chapman and wife Amy Garland. I am not sure
how many of their children came with them. Harrison and Charlotte's youngest
son was born in Texas in 1889. Almost all of them are buried in Golden
Cemetery, Golden, Wood Co, Texas.
I have also been told that they traveled with the Lee and Vandiver families.
My understanding is that there is some relationship between the families but
I do not know the exact connection.

Rusk Co. TX. My g-grandparents, John Anderson Hill and wife Rebecca Jane
Vandiver from the Paint Rock Valley of Jackson Co. AL, first moved to
Denton Co., TX, then to Clark Co., AR, and finally Rusk Co., TX in the
1880's. I've never figured out why they landed in Rusk County- I haven't
run across any of the Hill's or Vandiver's or Hall's (Rebecca's mother was
Permelia Hall) in that county. My grandfather and father were then born in
Rusk Co., TX. There must have been relatives or friends there (as there
were in Denton Co. and Clark Co.)

- Hi, I'm also interested in the Grahams that left Jackson County, AL and
ended up in Texas about 1850. Rev. Jesse Graham and wife Martha (Fanning)
Graham along with their families probably traveled together. I need info on
these families for Volume II of "And Then Along Came The Fannings" that I
hope to finish by April or May this year. I have some info, but a lot of
blanks can still be filled out by some of you, the researchers of theses
Also the Green and Landess families are included along with anyone related
to the Fanning families.
Thanks a million, waiting to hear from all of you.
