My father was Walter Witten Linkous, (b. 1925) s/o Joseph Aaron Linkous (called Joe or JP) and Ida Eliza Harrison from Tazewell County, VA and Bel Air, MD. My mother was Myra Joe Herron, (b. 1926) d/o George Herron and Flossie Ann Boshear. George was born in Grand Saline, Van Zandt County, TX and Flossie was born in Clay County, AR.
I’m looking for information on the Herrons. Here’s what I know:
George Herron, b. 1905, Van Zandt County, TX Parents: Felix Herron, SR , b.1882, Van Zandt Co., TX m. 22 Sep 1905 Dora May Land, b. 1888, Van Zandt Co., TX. Brothers of George: Erskin and Felix, JR.
Felix Herron, SR Parents: Daniel Herron b. 1855 Lamar Co., TX m. 15 Jan 1880 in Van Zandt Co., TX, Sarah Catherine (Sallie) Sorrels b. 1859 Carroll Parish, LA Siblings of Felix, SR: Benjamin, Emma, Ada, and Dee Alma, all born in Van Zandt Co. TX
Daniel Herron Parents: (1850 Census Decatur Co., IN) John F. Herron b. Abt 1818 Indiana m. Elizabeth Siblings of Daniel: Jeremiah (Jerry) b. 1842 in Indiana; Kittoria (Kittory) b. 1845 in Indiana; Gamaliel b. Aug 1849 in Indiana. All show to be living in Paris, Lamar Co., TX on the 1860 Census.
I have some information on spouses, but am at a brick wall at John F. and Elizabeth on back. I will share any info I have and would truly appreciate any help getting past this wall you can provide.
