I am Randy Farmer of Plano, Texas, writing a book on the history of the Red River Valley, Fannin County in particular.The Piner family is of interest to me.I found that F. D. Piner was one of the original founders of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Honey Grove, Texas, and apparently one of his sons, John W. Piner, was a "preacher" - he indicated that in his Civil War enlistment.I have seen his service record.
There was an Anderson family that were neighbors in Honey Grove that borrowed money from F. D. Piner and never paid him back - they went bankrupt in 1871.These Andersons were close to the Hardin family and had lived near them in Tennessee and Kentucky.The J. B. Anderson family had moved to Honey Grove from Graves County, Kentucky, which is next to Hickman, KY.The Andersons were farming in Hickman County when they went bankrupt.
Any information you could give on the Piners of this era would be helpful.My contact information is:Randy Farmer, 8700 Berwick Dr, Plano, Texas 75025---phone: [hidden].
