I came across some GEASLIN/GEESLIN names in Ellis Co. I've never seen or heard before. Please let me know if these mean anything to you. Icy Estella GEESLIN, female white, born May 15,1895 in Ellis Co. to George M. GEESLIN and Julia Ann VEST. George was abt 24 and Julia abt 20 at time of this birth; the record indicates they have another child; both parents born in TX.George is listed as Baptist Minister.There were two affidavits signed Aug 20, 1956 in Upshur Co., attesting to the birth of Icy Estella GEESLIN. One affidavit signed by Mrs. Julia Banister (wonder if this is Julia Ann, her mother?).The other affidavit is signed by J. W. Bryce in Upshur Co.; this affidavit states that J. W. Bryce is not related by blood or marriage to Icy Estella GEESLIN.
The other one is John C. GESLING, white male born Aug 5, 1877 in Ellis Co. to Zeke GESLIN and Rebecca LINSLEY.
Please let me know if you recognize these names.Thanks, Peggy
