I am seeking information on the ancestry of my maternal grandfather, Michael Perry "Cud" Fulkerson. He was a blacksmith, and at one time city marshall of Matador, TX. He got the nickname "Cud," because when he was very young, he would say "I'm mama's Cud old boy." I have fleeting memories of him, because he passed away when I was two years old.
Any information on his ancestry will be appreciated.
