    1. Re: [LA-TX] Lynch and Clark families from La to Texas late 1800's
    2. The line of Stephen Lynch is pretty well documented--but I am having a harder time with the connecting Clark line. Ann Isabel Clark was born Sept 1843 to Robert (some say Reuben) Clark and Nancy Raborn. The last record I can find on Ann's parents was the 1850 census: 1840 Census for Jasper County Mississippi, Unknown township, Page 173: Clark, Robert 3 males under age 5 1 male age 30 to 40 1 female age 10 to 15 1 female age 30 to 40 This researcher believes this is the same family. Jasper County is next to Lauderdale County where 1850 Census for Bienville Parish Louisiana, Western District, page 265 lists household # 255 as Robert Clark age 41 male, a carpenter born in Miss; Nancy age 42 female born in Miss, Luvenia age 17 female born in Miss, David C. age 15 male born in Miss, Virgil A. age 13 male born in Miss, Ransom age 11 male born in Miss, Isabella age 8 female born in Miss, and Sherod age 5 male born in Miss. Other Clarks living in the area were Household # 257 Eliza Clark age 38 born in OH with seven children born in Louisiana, Samuel Clark age 56 born in SC with wife Harriett age 49 born in SC, and a daughter Eliza age 25 born in Miss with another child Mary age 8 born in LA, and Household No. 245 James N. Clark age 31 born in Miss and Matilda age 17 born in Miss with no children. Ann Clark married Stephen Patrick Lynch born 1839 in Rapides Parish LA. I am interested in anyone with Lynch or Clark connections. Happy Hunting! Vinita Lynch Shaw El Paso, TX

    3. Administrator: I have been a subscriber to this web sight since May '06. During the time period to this date, there has been no activity what so ever. Am I subscribed wrong, or is this the norm? Thought it would be a good sight to read some dicussions of Johnsons from Alabama that went to Texas stopping enroute in Mississippi and Louisiana (some establishing homesteads before traveling on to Ark and Texas) c1835-1860. Traveling from Bibb Co, Alabama. Trying to locate my great grandfather Hardy Johnson and son Henry and other children names unknown (Hardy is a brickwall). Just curious. Thanks. A. K. Johnson

    1. Re: [LA-TX]
    2. I noticed your (409) area code. Since you are in SE TX, I suggest the Houston Library. Beaumont or Orange libraries might be able to get them for you on loan. Probably the Lamar library in Orange. If you are in Austin anytime in the near future, LBJ Library, can be a wonderful source. Louisiana being hard hit, I would suggest Baton Rouge (LSU) or Lafayette also has some good books but I would check TX first. Good luck with your research. Best Regard, Betty (formerly from SE TX and SW LA)

    1. Re: [LA-TX] McCoy that surveyed Texas
    2. You might try the "General Land Office" in Austin, TX. They keep records of old and new land dealings for the entire state of TX. I believe you can reach them through the state of Texas website and click General Land Office. My daughter used to work there and she said they have major history on all land including when Texas was still part of Mexico, when Texas was a republic and after it became a state. Good Luck. Betty

He was given land for payment for his work so he would be an original land owner of Texas. Texas became a state in 1845 so the survance would be a few years before that. In the 1950's a family member in Kansas found a McCoy that was a grandson to the McCoy that helped survey the state....but my Cousin didn't want to tell this person that he was kin to us....a family grudge I guess...But is anyone has some information that they would pass along I be real grateful not all the McCoy in my family think like my cousin does and would like to get in touch with this part of our family......Steph
