I am deperately looking for any information on the Addy clan that lived in or near Bowie County, TX. My last known ancestor goes back to John Henry Addy (b. 03/17/1893 in DeKalb, TX; d. 02/15/1923 in DeKalb; m. Ethel Shaver).His son was Otis Loyd Addy (b. 08/17/1913 in DeKalb; d. 11/28/1968 in Fort Worth, TX).Otis was my grandfather.
I believe that John Henry's mother was named Jane Landers.It is thought that her father (William?) came over directly from Ireland.I have no other information on them.
I am trying to find the link (if any) between this line and the William/Thomas Addy line running through Delaware/Ohio/Arkansas/Texas.
Also, if you are interested there is a very detailed pedigree (w/GEDCOM) on the William line at the Ohio River Valley Genealogical Database website (see link http://orvf.com/cgi-bin/igmdesc.cgi/n=orvf?I46314http://orvf.com/cgi-bin/igmdesc.cgi/n=orvf?I46314 ).
Any information you may have on John Henry would be greatly appreciated.
