Eh, right board, wrong board, who's to say? Margaret does a lot of PATE research and related lines, Charlotte does a lot of HUFFMAN, Jim does a lot of Bilberry/Bilbrey, and so forth; I do everyone, because I have a double descent from both Charles B. Huffman and from Thomas Medlock, and it's the inter-marriages between the two families and related families makes it so consarned complicated.
There's several of us with double descent or with enough connections to be so classed.One of Elizabeth J Huffman Eaton Hoy's dau, Laura Eaton, married Jerry (Jeremiah) Medlock, son of Thomas Medlock, and that sort of retied various lines also.
BUT as for the HOY, that was it, that was the only tie to the HOY that I know of, Joel Darwin HOY m2 to Elizabeth J Huffman Eaton, widow, marriage without HOY issue, and there they are in the 1880 Lampasas Co TX Census, along with Elizabeth's three youngest dau, Laura, Emaline & Adaline Eaton. Thomas Eaton off on some other farm, working.
Joel Darwin HOY was classed as a 'drover' in 1867, one of a number of 'drovers' who lost a herd to raids, and mentioned in a '100-years-later' sort of article in the local paper, an article about ADAMS, think it was, in the Lampasas Vertical File (online).
Joel's 1st wife is found under 'Kate' in the cemetery there in Lampasas Co, along with several of his dau (married) and their spouses, and himself, and one of his sons, Joel Jr, d. age 14. It's all online at the Lampasas County site.
I didn't take the connection further than that since there were no 'cousin-ties' that I know of.
We are definitely looking forward to having you in the Medlock Discussion Group (well, Medlock, Huffman, Pate, Bilberry/Bilbrey, Smith, Eaton, Ellis, and so forth).
