I am a fifth-generation Texan on my mother's side of the family. My ancestors on my mother's side of the family came to Texas from Alabama and Louisiana in the 1850's. My dad moved to Texas from Illinois in the 1930's.
I am researching:
-the family of Gen. John Archer Elmore who lived in Autauga County, AL when he died in 1834.
-the family of Hamlin Freeman Lewis, the brother of Sen. Dixon Hall Lewis of Alabama.
-the Curtis and Sterne families from Stafford County, VA, some of whom moved to Texas circa the Civil War.
-the Kellogg family in Wheaton, IL.
-the Hill family in east Texas and northern Louisiana.
-the Cowart family in east Texas.
